Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the training take to complete?

Completing the interactive training session and the assessment will take between two and three hours.

How much does it cost to participate?

The rates are dependent on how many companies are being enrolled.  Please see the Participate! page for full details. 

For how long is the accreditation valid?

Two years from date of completion, or until the senior manager who completed the training is no longer part of the management team. You can see the date of expiry of the certificate on the Accredited Companies page. 

If a company is accredited, does it mean that they are an ethical company?

Not necessarily. We can merely accredit that the company has undergone the training and are aware of the ethical requirements.  We therefore accredit them as being ‘ethically aware’.

Is the course specific to any country?

No.  While we refer to international legislation, this is done in general terms to show the principles of the law.  The course is therefore applicable to suppliers in any country.

What is the pass-mark to be accredited?

Participants need to achieve a pass-mark of at least 70%.
