While many people would consider accredited training to be more advantageous, there are numerous reasons to pick unaccredited training too. Here are just some of the benefits and drawbacks of both, and tips as to which variety of training is right for you and your business.

An accredited training course is one which is officially accredited by a recognised training board, including NEBOSH, CITB, UKATA, Qualsafe and many more. These courses are standardised, ensuring that every person who takes them is learning the same information. 

 

Accredited courses are transferable skills which can be put on your CV, and are a requirement for many roles. They tend to require more of a time investment than non-accredited courses, and may include the purchase of course materials (e.g. textbooks) and taking formalised tests.

Accredited training courses are taught by approved providers, a list of which can often be found on the training boards’ websites. These providers are frequently audited to ensure that they uphold the highest standards of teaching, ensuring that everyone who takes an accredited course receives the same training.

While an accredited course is not guaranteed to offer a superior training experience or more information than a non-accredited course, it is more valuable in the long run. Completion of an accredited training course yields a certificate and qualification which act as proof of competence. This can be a great avenue for progression within a business, and even a route into a new career.

Simply put, an accredited training course is a hallmark of high quality training. By opting for an accredited course, you ensure that your training is to the highest standard, and covers everything you will need to know within a particular field. It also provides you with a certificate which you can carry with you, and will be recognised around the UK and even the world.

 

You might choose non-accredited training to give employees an overview of health & safety awareness, fire safety, or other basic aspects of workplace health and safety. While they would not be officially accredited – in other words, they wouldn’t be able to put it on their CV – they would still have received valuable information from a qualified trainer.
