We are here to help you realise your extraordinary potential!
Certification can be achieved via a series of key stages as shown above.
More details about these elements can be found below:
Application and welcome
All of our certification schemes begin with an online application. You can access the relevant application form for each scheme from the dedicated certification scheme pages of our website.
Online learning support is provided by The Standards International Academy ™, our learning portal, to help you prepare for your assessment.
Process and document review
Self-assessment tools exist within The Standards International Academy™ to help you prepare for your assessment. Alternatively, we can provide an in-person appraisal of your processes, procedures and supporting documentation (at an additional cost). Both routes will enable you to measure your position against the requirements of the standard(s) prior to assessment, and identify any ‘gaps’ to be addressed.
You are empowered to implement any action necessary to close out issues which may have been identified through the ‘gap-analysis’ process and document review either independently, with support from The Standards International Academy™ or with in-person support (at an additional cost).
A formal assessment by one of our independent assessors is the final stage in year one of your certification journey. The process ensures that best practice standards of excellence have been effectively implemented by you and/or your business.
Quality Review Assessment
Once you have successfully achieved certification, you will enter our Quality Review Assessment programme which runs over four years in line with The 4Es of Excellence™ – Establish, Embed, Elevate and Endless. This process allows you to demonstrate on an annual basis how continual improvement has further propelled your business and/or yourself.
