Certified Learning and Development Practitioners

In a world where there are tens of thousands of freelance trainers, it can be difficult for TrainerBase and training purchasers to make a distinction. TrainerBase is bound to only recommend trainers who have been seen to demonstrate competence in line with The Standard developed by and for members of TrainerBase.

The Certified Learning and Development Practitioner (CLP) accreditation enables TrainerBase and others within the community to have confidence that a freelance trainer operates in a fitting manner. TrainerBase wants to recommend its members; now it can and does. Below is a list of Learning and Development Practitioners who have provided evidence of the application of knowledge and are accredited with TrainerBase.


The above trainers are the only members for whom TrainerBase can provide a reference or a recommendation.

"If you are serious about looking for new customers and helping them to find you, then becoming a CLP could certainly give you an edge’"

"The structure of CLP is perfect for that step away from unconscious incompetence/competence and stimulates proactive thought on both the detailed practice and the bigger picture of one’s work."

"To chase accreditation or leave it alone? Is it worth it? Is it too much trouble? Does it bring any benefits? I can confidently say that for me it’s been both helpful and productive, both personally and for my business."
