The benefits of training course accreditation

The benefits of training course accreditation

With all dhf 1-day Level 2 training courses taken during October 2020 including free upgrades to ABBE accreditation, we felt it would be helpful to explain what benefits accreditation would give your installation engineers and your business. This short article will take a quick look at the benefits for installation engineers and installation businesses, however first we must explain what accreditation actually is.

What does accreditation mean?
Specialised accreditation attests to the quality of an educational program that prepares for entry into a recognised profession. The purpose of accreditation is the improvement of academic quality and public accountability. dhf is an Approved Assessment Centre of ABBE, who is regulated by Ofqual, the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation, which regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England. dhf is proud to offer formal accredited courses for its Automated Gate & Traffic Barrier and Industrial & Garage Door training through ABBE. Find out more about dhf ABBE accreditation here. dhf continues to offer the only  accredited theory-based courses in the industry.

Why would an installation engineer desire course accreditation?
Successful completion of an accredited training course means the training delegate can enhance their CV, and the training accreditation remains with them as long as they continue to maintain their level of knowledge in the course.

What benefits would an installation firm get from having accredited installation engineers?
Just as any organisation would benefit from having accredited members of staff, an installation firm with properly accredited staff would have an edge over competitors without accredited staff. Having accreditation also helps highlight to customers and other members of staff that safety is the highest priority.

Can Level 4 training be accredited as well?
Yes, this can be added at the time of booking. Level 4 training is intended for supervisors or managers - persons within a company that can impart meaningful change to safety checks and procedures, so having accreditation is ideal for those at this level of management.

How do I add accreditation?
The accreditation upgrade is an automatic upgrade for all 1-day courses taken during October, so nothing extra needs to be done when booking the courses.

Course bookings for all face to face and Distance Learning Programme courses are made online at

2-day Level 4 Award courses will be upgraded for the first day only, the second day of 2-day courses can be upgraded for an additional fee.

dhf hopes this explains the benefits of course accreditation fully. If you have any questions please contact us using the info at the bottom of this page.
