COTPOT has been awarded with ISO 29993:2017 certification


The ISO 29993:2017 certification is a highly specialized standard for Learning Services Providers.


Why is ISO 29993 important?


A globalized and fast-changing knowledge-based economy requires people to continue acquiring new skills and knowledge for their entire professional and private lives. The formal education system plays an important role in a country’s human resources development. However, it is not always effective and sufficient in terms of meeting the rapidly evolving needs of individuals and societies. Private providers of learning services have more flexibility to respond quickly to such needs. In addition, as the cross-border mobility of employment increases in the global economy, more and more private providers are expanding their international presence and providing learning services to learners beyond their national borders.


ISO 29993 is intended to provide such private providers with a generic frame of reference for quality learning services. The International Standard 29993 is intended to:

Align various elements of learning services, including advertising, information provided to learners, needs analysis, design, assessment and evaluation, for the purpose of improving the effectiveness, efficiency and transparency of learning services.



Who developed ISO 29993?


ISO 29993 was developed by the ISO technical committee for learning services outside formal education (ISO/TC 232). The committee consists of cross-sectoral experts and delegations from 16 national standardization bodies, who bring a wealth of international experience and expertise to the standards being developed.
