Training Accreditation

Training Accreditation


UQSA works with organizations to formally accredit their training programmes. Accredited courses can be public courses or in-house, of any form or length and delivered anywhere in the world.   The criteria for the accreditation of training courses define a number of requirements that include:

  • Course content
  • Course duration
  • Learning Objectives
  • Delegate training materials
  • Training methods
  • Tutors
  • Examinations
  • Course Location, language and facilities
  • Course publicity and Advertising

The training provider will gain the following benefits:

  • the training can be described as ‘accredited by the UQAS’, giving the course more authority and distinction. Prospective delegates and their employers will know that the course, its learning objectives and content have been reviewed and approved by a respected professional body
  • promotional and training material, and also certificates of attendance for delegates, can include the UQAS logo and suitable wording relating to the accreditation (conditions and wording as agreed with UQAS)
  • Accredited courses will be advertised free of charge on the UQAS website and within its training catalogue.
  •  Accredited courses available for public bookings will be promoted directly to UQAS members.

In return for these benefits the training provider will pay fees to UQAS as follows:

  • A non-refundable fee for the initial proposal process
  • An accreditation fee, based on the amount and nature of material to be reviewed
  • An annual renewal fee.
