  • *provide a means for trainers and training providers to demonstrate to prospective students that courses are provided to a high and consistent standard of content by the use of appropriate logos and wording on promotional material.
  • *enable students to claim the maximum CPD points for training courses attended.
  • *recommend endorsed courses only on the EPS website.
