What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a formal and intensive review to ensure that an educational course is capable of delivering high-quality and effective training. These reviews are conducted by independent organizations known as “accreditation bodies”.
When completing any course it’s important to check the accreditation behind it.
ACCREDITAT is an independent accreditation body, part of the Training Issues education group (established in 2002), which has been providing in-depth evaluations of ESL courses and organizations for over 10 years.
These reviews are conducted by highly experienced professionals with unrivaled experience:
