External Course Accreditation

Criteria for accreditation

BIOS accredits externally-run CPD courses: the decision whether to accredit or not is BIOS's alone and there is no guarantee that any application will be successful. However, courses will normally be approved if:

  • they meet the Society's standards in all respects
  • accreditation is applied for as prescribed below
  • such an application is made in sufficient time to allow it to be considered thoroughly
