CIMSPA-recognised education and training can be delivered in two ways.
- Open Training Activities: those which are created and administered by the individual skills development partner. CIMSPA members attending must be offered at least a 10% discount.
- Closed Training Activities: private courses created and administered by a skills development partner, but not advertised on the CIMSPA training and events directory.
All open courses will be listed on the CIMSPA training and events directory. This will be the single and definitive marketplace for recognised training in the sector.
Training activity categories
Each recognised training activity will be either:
- Endorsed: training activities that align to relevant professional standards. These may include, but are not limited, to national occupational standards (NOS), professional standards from CIMSPA’s professional standards matrix and recognised European standards.
- Developmental: training activities that are not aligned to relevant professional standards but instead support an individual in their professional and/or personal development.
