Criteria for BSCCP Courses

Getting a course accredited by the BSCCP

All courses advertised as “accredited by BSCCP” must be reviewed in advance by the BSCCP Certification and Training Committee. In order for the course to be approved by the BSCCP and recognised for BSCCP accreditation please complete the following:

The course programme showing the date, city where the event will be held and speakers must be emailed 28 days in advance to at the BSCCP secretariat for submission to the Committee for approval.

Course organisers will be informed if the programme is approved and only at this stage may the course be advertised as accredited by BSCCP.

The BSCCP logo must not under any circumstances be used without permission by the BSCCP which will only be granted to courses which meet the set criteria.

The approval of courses process remains unchanged if a similar course programme has been approved previously. Course organisers should resubmit the programme for approval and the course may only be advertised as accredited by the BSCCP when the programme has been approved.

Following approval of the programme the course can be advertised on the BSCCP website if requested. The BSCCP will now be charging an accreditation fee of 5% of the organiser’s course fee. This replaces the previous fixed cost and is non-refundable.
