Foundation Training is the mandatory prerequisite to further CPD in the same discipline (see below) and can be developed by an employer in-house or by a private training provider. Foundation Training must map 100% to our standards to ensure an industry benchmark is met, but you have the autonomy to add more contextualised content to the course and assessment – a huge benefit when developing your universal selling point to learners.

You have the choice of endorsing your Foundation Training individually, as a Foundation Pay as You Go (PAYG) endorsement, or through Foundation Unlimited endorsement (Special Populations and Strength & Conditioning Foundation Training only) which would enable you to gain endorsement for all your other CPD once you are approved without incurring further submission fees. Both options will provide you with continuing support from a dedicated External Quality Assurer.

Foundation Training endorsement is available in the following disciplines:

  • Special Populations: (available as PAYG or Unlimited)
    • Pre and Post Natal (PD:Approval learner manual available, see the Important Information section below)

1-3 CPD points

Informal training does not require formal learning checks as it is predominantly research, practical training or self-directed learning e.g. short workshops, master classes, pod casts, book reviews. However, all training in this category must be underpinned by current, valid research and be evidence based. Endorsement is for informal training that is at least one hour long.
