Certified Training Organisations​

Certified Training Organisations (CTO) are Organisations certified by EFQM in delivering official EFQM Training Courses.

All EFQM Certified Organisations need to be an existing Member of EFQM or will need to join EFQM as a new Member.

All EFQM certified organisations will have the possibility to purchase licenses to access new EFQM digital platforms (Assess Base and Knowledge Base) and re-sell them externally. Information about Assess base and Knowledge Base are available on the EFQM website. 

EFQM Certified Training Organisations will be asked to accept and uphold the EFQM Code of Conduct.

What is an EFQM Certified Trainer?

  • EFQM Certified Trainers are experts who have been certified by EFQM to deliver official EFQM Training Courses on behalf of an EFQM Certified Training Organisation qualified as such by EFQM
  • EFQM Certified Trainers have a thorough understanding of the EFQM Model and have a track-record in the field of training, in the general field of management and / or organisational improvement
  • EFQM Certified Trainers are listed on the EFQM website underneath the EFQM Certified Training Organisation they are affiliated with.

Becoming a Certified Trainer

An EFQM Certified Trainer must deliver his/her training courses on behalf of an organisation, which has been approved as an EFQM Certified Training Organisation. An EFQM Certified Trainer must demonstrate proven experience in the field of training delivery for a period of at least 2 years and be observed by EFQM, or its appointed agent, in delivering some management training.

We expect a minimum of 3 references from previous clients that demonstrate their satisfaction with the knowledge and services provided by the applicant in training delivery.

These represent the initial requirements for obtaining a license as EFQM Certified Trainer.
