This certification route is for any organisation that offers training and education services including: professional bodies, training departments, training providers and further education establishments and has been developed in accordance with the internationally recognised standard, ISO17065:2012.

Successful certification to the scheme, gives learning providers the ability to demonstrate they meet the highest standards worldwide.

How does the learning provider scheme work?

We will work with you to organise a time for your organisation to undergo an audit, which will identify whether you meet the core learning provider requirements. The audit will focus on key areas including:

  • Governance
  • Management Responsibilities 
  • Quality Management System 
  • Personnel and Training 
  • Traceability
  • Facilities 
  • Document Control
  • Goods inward inspection 
  • Product Development (if applicable)
  • Learning Delivery 

Depending on the sector or specialism of your organisation, there may be additional requirements for you to meet. These additional requirements generally are for providers who deliver training in highly specialist, or safety critical areas.

To make the process smoother, the IQ Verify Learning Provider guide is available so you are able to understand what information we will need, as well as the full process.
