To be approved by NRCPD, a course must teach the competences required by the relevant professional standards. We assess course content and teaching resources to make sure students are appropriately trained.
To achieve NRCPD approval for your course you need to complete our programme evaluation form. Fill in details about the course you run or are planning to run and send the form to us. Full details of the approval process are in the guidance notes that come with the evaluation form.
Our professional standards advisors will look at the information you provide and contact you to complete the evaluation. If your course is approved you can advertise that your students are eligible to register when they complete the course successfully.
We monitor all the training programmes we approve to make sure they continue to meet the standards we need.
