ELP and CPD Programmes

Endorsed Learning Programmes (ELP) is our recognition of your own courses and training programmes. The endorsement helps your training stand out from the rest bringing the prestige of OTHM with them. The availability of such endorsement gives learners, employers and wider businesses and industries confidence that the programmes are developed around best practice and they are working towards globally recognised standards.

An endorsed programme means that it is unique to your organisation as you own the programme and provides confidence that it meets your own requirements and that of any local need. It is also an effective way of providing certification for your own in-house programmes too such as study days, seminars and short courses.

Annual quality assurance carried out by OTHM is also a feature of the programme and ensures it meets OTHM standards and provides confidence to learners in the achievement of your programme.

All OTHM certificates come with a transcript of study to provide clarity to learners along their career pathway.

Programme size

  • Award: 1 – 12 credits
  • Certificate: 13 – 36 credits
  • Diploma: 37 credits and above

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities and knowledge in their workplace. Undertaking CPD provides a rounded approach towards the enhancement of personal skills and proficiency throughout a professional’s career.

CPD is an ongoing process of regularly improving skills and competencies to enhance workplace performance and future career prospects. This can mean everything from taking a training course or attending seminars, workshops, conferences and events, webinars, and short online eLearning programmes.

Our CPD certification service will support organisations that run CPD courses by providing a digital certification. These are non-credited programmes where only a certificate of attendance or equivalent is required, and which participants can provide as evidence of CPD and professional ongoing learning.

To offer our certification service for your CPD programmes, you will need to apply for approval for your programmes by completing a prescribed form.

All CPD programmes are awarded with a certificate only and without any transcript.
