CPD Accreditation Scheme

The UK-AFI runs a CPD accreditation scheme where we provide accreditation to third-party training events. Where CPD activity promotes the Objectives of the UK-AFI, by:

  1. Developing and maintaining good practice in the investigation of  fire and arson by ensuring the highest professional standards of competence, or
  2. Developing technical knowledge in fire and arson investigation techniques and procedures and making knowledge available to professionals, service providers and the public.

CPD providers can seek accreditation from UK-AFI for four different types of activity:

  • Instructor-led training or course
  • On line course
  • Speaker
  • Event

A provider wishing to seek accreditation is required to complete a submission form as well as provide any additional information and specified documentation that may be required in support of the submission.

The accreditation process considers the type of activity, the learning experience and the learning outcomes.

Successful applications will incur a £100.00 administration charge that will be invoiced following the processing of the application. The administration charge will be waived where events are free to attend, or they offer a discounted rate to members of the UK-AFI.

We are in the process of preparing a formal CPD accreditation policy and we will be streamlining the application process via this website. The current application form that we have been using to date can be accessed HERE.
