The APTL Validation Service

As an organisation we do not offer accreditation. The word "ACCREDITATION" is often misused in our industry because unless the awarding body is issuing the certificates then they are not technically accrediting them, and most organizations that offer an accreditation service are insurance providers. At the APTL we do not offer insurance. 

However, if members have their own training school and would like the APTL to Validate their courses please get in touch.

The definition of “Accreditation”.   Noun: meaning official certification that a school or course has met standards set by external regulators.                                               For example "the first fully online university to receive national accreditation" 

All APTL members are supported by our registered panel of Lecturers and Tutors who offer guidance on all aspects of running a successful business. We also have a dedicated Facebook Page and Facebook Group as extra support

The APTL is not a medical organisation and we will not enter into any discussion or conversation with a member or members of the public regarding their physical health, mental health and wellbeing, neither will we offer advice. As an organisation, we have a duty of care to refer clients, members and members of the public to an appropriate organisation qualified to offer guidance and support. 

If you are seeking help with any aspect of your wellbeing, please visit your GP.
