exam then you will receive a certificate of completion, to recognise your achievement.

International Open Academy Certificate


All courses we produce are annually assessed and accredited by the International Council for Online 

Educational Standards ( This third-party assessment of our courses rigorously tests the content, 

design and integrity of each course to ensure the highest standards for online education are being achieved.

When successfully completing an IOA course, students can choose to purchase an ICOES certificate that recognises the achievement, 

from this third-party institution. The ICOES certificate underlines to employers, colleagues and customers that your online course 

is approved by a body that requires its members, such as IOA, to meet specific standards in the provision of online education.

CE/CPD Points

Continuing Education (CE)/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points are required by many 

professions or professional body memberships in order to remain fully qualified in a respective career. 

CE/CPD shows a clear commitment to self-development and professionalism.

Many of our courses are approved to carry CE/CPD points to support people on these programs.
