The aims of ENT UK Accreditation

Continuing Professional Development is central to lifelong learning and ENT UK aims to assure that teaching and training are delivered to a high standard: course content is scrutinised and delegate feedback is reviewed; courses are inspected to ensure that all courses with ENT UK CPD approval meet the highest standards. 

ENT UK assesses courses for quality and awards CPD points which can be counted towards revalidation.

Courses which are awarded the ENT UK quality kite mark will ensure that ENT professionals have access to high quality training thereby contributing to the relief of patients suffering from diseases in the ear, nose and throat and related areas.

The advantages of acquiring accreditation through ENT UK:

  • Approval from ENT’s national body
  • Rapid turnaround of CPD points allocation
  • Robust quality assurance, with course inspection and evaluation
  • ENT UK kite mark quality certification mark for use on promotional and course material (within branding guidelines)
  • Advertise your course on the ENT UK website, ENT UK news and in the ENT UK round ups
