Accreditation: important for training firms to operate in Nigeria

The Centre for Management Development (CMD), on Tuesday in Abuja said the accreditation of training firms is an important criteria for them to operate in the country.

Mr Bitrus Chinoko, CMD Acting Director-General said this in a statement, adding that the centre had commenced verification of training firms in the country in order to accredit them.

According to him, the verification is to ensure that training firms are credible and had necessary requisites to carry out trainings in the country.

He, therefore, advised that they should take advantage of the centre’s ongoing verification to do the needful.

“We are using this medium to advice other training firms to get accredited as its an important criteria to have a training firm in the country.

“Many accredited firms have gone through the process and ready for business, the accreditation process is done once in a year and it last for five years,’’ Chinoko said.

He added that after the necessary assessment by the centre, qualified firms would be accredited accordingly.

“This accreditation is important because it gives quality training delivery, enhance organisational performance as the sequel to higher level skills and competence,’’ he said.

According to him, the importance of the accreditation cannot be over emphasised.

This, he said was to ensure that the individual carrying out training functions had the necessary qualifications, experience and training to do so.

Chinoko added that the exercise would also help to check the incidence of unqualified persons parading themselves as trainers and ensure a culture of training that was guided by professional ethics and competence.

He said more than 557 firms applied for accreditation, out of which 414 would be visited and screened to ensure that the best was gotten.

He said that the verification which began early November would end in December, adding that 16 states would be visited.

“One of the importance of this verification is that it develops and promotes high national standards of the management education, entrepreneurial development and supervisory training programmes,’’ Chinoko said.
