Endorsed Learning Programmes (ELP)

Not all existing qualifications fit the needs of your organisation, which is why we are able to offer Endorsed Learning Programmes – our recognition of your own courses and training programmes. The endorsement helps your training stand out from the rest, and brings the prestige of OTHM to employers and learners alike in indigenous market as well as overseas. The availability of such Endorsed Learning Programmes (ELP) gives learners confidence that the programmes are developed around best practice and they are working towards globally recognised standards.

The ELP is not a regulated qualification, however your organisation owns the training programme and it remains unique to your organisation.

Annual quality assurance carried out by OTHM is also a feature of the programme and ensures it meets OTHM standards.
