These are our Terms and Conditions of business and we ask you to take the time to read them. These Terms and Conditions constitute a contract between your organisation and International Center For Professional Development®. Any reference to ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’, 'ICPD®', or ‘Company’ means International Center For Professional Development®. Any reference to ‘you’ or ‘your, or any similar expression means the individual, company, or organisation with whom we will be working with. Any reference to ‘Accredited Providers/ Trainers’ means your named status once you have entered into this contractual agreement.
For Provider/Trainer CPD Accreditation, you will be required to complete a registration form via https://www.intlcpd.org (our website). If your application is successful, an email confirmation will be sent with documentation of your organisation’s Accredited Provider/Trainer status. Your CPD Provider/Trainer logo and CPD Provider/Trainer Certificate will be enclosed. You agree to not use your CPD Provider/Trainer Accreditation to portray or mislead anyone to believe that any of the individual CPD activities you provide/deliver have received CPD accreditation.
Please note that registration is open to businesses, online, mobile learning providers, classrooms, conference providers, trainers, and coaches. Registration is assigned to the applicant and you are not allowed to re-assign the rights and obligations elsewhere without prior written consent.
CPD Activities receiving Accreditation are subject to a rigorous mapping through our CPD Accreditation Framework to ensure their suitability for the specific industry they are aimed. You agree that the Accreditation service provided is limited to assessing whether learning materials are suitable and comply with industry guidelines. We have no responsibility for reviewing technical content, accuracy or completeness of the materials provided.
International Center For Professional Development® will accredit CPD Activities individually for a minimum accreditation period of 12, 24 or 36 months. Agreed Annual Fees will be fixed for the specific term chosen.
Additional Activities can be added to the subscription at any time. When adding further activities, the current Accreditation Contract will cease and a new Contract will start, based upon your chosen accreditation period. The existing activities will not be required to be accredited again and a new Accreditation expiry date will be issued in line with the new contract for any existing activities.
All accreditation fees will be collected in full, by Credit or Debit Card.
On successful completion of the review process, and receipt of the scheduled accreditation fee, a new listing for your CPD Activity will be published on https://www.intlcpd.org.
If you fail to pay accreditation fees on the due date we will, without prejudice, suspend your registration until payment has been made in full for the remaining Accreditation Period and further offer of credit will be declined. (An invoice for the remainder of your chosen accreditation contract length will be raised and full payment must be made within 14 days.)
The submitter will categorically retain all intellectual property rights of submitted CPD materials, and you grant us a licence to use such CPD materials to the extent required to allow us to perform our obligations under these conditions.
We encourage customers to update courses in line with new techniques, research, technology etc. Updated courses must be re-submitted and re-accredited (please contact us to discuss if only minor changes). There are no additional charges for re-accreditation during the accreditation period. If courses are not updated, the CPD accreditation can only be valid for a maximum 36 months, after which time the Accreditation will become invalid and all listings removed from https://www.intlcpd.org and you will be required to cease use of all trademarks and IP belonging to International Center For Professional Development® from your activities and promotional materials.
If your chosen accreditation period is either 12 or 24 months originally, and you wish to renew your accreditation, you will only be able to renew up to a maximum of 36 months (e.g 12 months accreditation can only be renewed for a maximum additional term of 24 months, totalling 36 months combined). After 36 months in total, your activities must be fully accredited and reviewed by the CPD Accreditation Team.
Should you cancel or terminate your accreditation with us during agreed term, the remainder of your chosen contract length will be invoiced, and full payment must be made within 14 days. (Please be aware that because your subscription can be used immediately, you do not have the statutory cooling off period).
