NCPS | Training Outside of the UK

It's important to note that overseas training courses do not provide access to the Accredited Register for students completing training.

The Professional Standards Authority’s (PSA) accredited register programme applies to the UK only, and neither ourselves nor the PSA have any jurisdiction overseas. Instead, where 'Approved Overseas' training has been completed, graduates will be listed on the Overseas Members Directory. Overseas Quality Checked courses can be considered for anything from individual workshops, shorter foundation courses, specialist trainings or distance learning courses.
