'CIfA Approved Training & CPD' is our brand name for training and CPD approved by us. It is a quality mark bearing the yellow logo above, which means it has been assessed against a set of learning criteria.
A range of other organisations have CIfA Approved training & CPD, which includes CPD courses, field schools and excavation training, Registered Organisations in-house employee training and Historic England courses. More information for training providers can be found here.
