Training Course Accreditation
AIT Accreditation is a simple, low cost and extremely efficient way to step out of the crowd and show your potential students that you are approved, endorsed and eligible to offer, on completion of your courses, AIT membership and insurance packages to them.
AIT Accreditation isn’t just a logo, or a membership, it allows you to instil confidence and provide guidance to your potential students that they can get insurance with AIT. Once insured your students can continue practicing on the public with the new skills they have learnt.
If you are running private courses in either beauty or holistic treatments that are not recognised by an education board, we must have received a completed and verified accreditation application to ensure a smooth and simple process for your students and our future members. Without completing the AIT Accreditation process we cannot deem your courses suitable to a level that we can insure for, as we have not reviewed your course manuals, materials, and the documentation we require to determine this.
Having your courses AIT Accredited is crucial in giving your courses the seal of approval and recognition they deserve. A successful application would allow you access to the use of our accreditation logo, insurance for your students, as well as loads of membership benefits to becoming an AIT Accredited member.

Accreditation Pricing Structure
*The above pricing is for the initial application. Once the initial accreditation application has passed, any additional courses added are charged at €50 per course. If you are insured with AIT, there are NO renewal or annual fees, however if you are with a different provider there may be a €100 charge per active policy annually to allow for additional administration and checking of insurance documentation. This means after the initial accreditation application we require no further payment from you, unless you have written a new course manual that you wish to get accredited, you wish to convert your courses in to digital, or you are insured with a different provider in which case additional costs will apply.
