The expected course level achieved (Level 2, Level 3 or Level 4) and relevent Certificate accreditation is specifically listed under the individual course details, along with learning outcomes, assessment criteria and syllabus.
EFAW, FAW and PFA Courses are available as Regulated Qualifications.
A 'Regulated Qualification' is a qualification that is provided through an Awarding Organisation recognised and regulated by one of the UK Regulators (eg. Ofqual in England or SQA Accreditation in Scotland). The certificate of achievement awarded to successful learners will contain the logo of our chosen Awarding Organisation, Training Qualifications UK ("TQUK"), and the relevant UK Regulator along with the full qualification title and number.
A Regulated Qualification is often required by learners/organisations for funding purposes. A Regulated qualification is often regarded of higher value to an 'in-house' qualification, as the certificate for a regulated qualification demonstrates that the learner has attained a qualification approved by both a UK Regulator and recognised Awarding Organisation.
Many qualifications offered in the UK are regulated by Independent Regulators. In England the Regulator is Ofqual; in Scotland the Regulator is SQA Accreditation.
Regulated qualifications are listed on the websites of the qualification regulators. The Ofqual Register (http://register.ofqual.gov.uk/) has a searchable database of all qualifications that are regulated in England.
If you require clarification or have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Additional accreditation and First Aid Qualifications
All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements. A First Aid qualification does not have to be a regulated course i.e through an AO as long as it complies with the guidelines of leaflet 74 and the due diligence checks have been done. Please see the free down loads below or get in touch if you would like any additional information on the thorough due diligence steps followed and maintained by The Bridge First Aid.
(CPD) Continuous professional development
A CPD may be a requirement of membership of a professional body. It can help you to reflect, review and document your learning and to develop and update your professional knowledge and skills.
Animal Courses and Petworking Events
The content of our pet, canine, cat care and horse care courses have been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.
As professional it in any field CPD refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It's a record of what you experience, learn and then apply.
