IAOCR Accreditation is internationally recognized, robust and independently verified. Our accredited modules and accredited assessment criteria are developed from global core competencies established by industry and mapped to the International Standard Classification of Education developed by UNESCO. This is the framework which provides an international “currency” for qualifications and accreditations and thus enables IAOCR Qualified Status Certification to be recognizable by educational establishments and employers globally. 


What is an IAOCR Certified Academy Partner 

IAOCR Certified Academy Partners work with us to develop program(s) that are fully IAOCR accredited. The training programs and the trainers delivering those programs are all accredited and all learners going through the programs complete the accreditation assessment in order to achieve IAOCR Internationally Qualified Status. IAOCR services include:

  • Award of 5* IAOCR Accreditation for your training program(s).

  • Training, assessment and accreditation for Academy training team and competence assessor training. 

  • Full independent verification and accreditation of Academy delegates.

  • Award of IAOCR Internationally Qualified Status to Academy delegates and accreditation documents

  • Portfolio-only route* for already experienced & competent individuals.

  • Joint marketing and promotion strategy and support services to help attract delegates, fill programs and position your organisation as a ‘center of excellence’.

*Portfolio-only Route: This route is available to those individuals who are already experienced in their role and therefore do not require training. Instead, they can demonstrate their competence for the accreditation assessment through submitting a 'portfolio of evidence' captured in their day to day workplace activities.
