Demonstrate your commitment to delivering quality learning services with ISO 29990

In today’s competitive market place, companies are increasingly demanding that staff are continually being up skilled and trained. To cater for this the demand and growth of non-formal education and corporate training programmes provided by learning services providers have grown exponentially.

The objective of ISO 29990 is to provide a generic model for quality professional practice and performance, and a common reference for learning service providers (LSPs) and their clients in the design, development and delivery of non-formal education, training and development. This International Standard uses the term “learning services” rather than “training” in order to encourage a focus on the learner and the results of the process, and to emphasize the full range of options available for delivering learning services.

This International Standard focuses on the competency of LSPs. It is intended to assist organizations and individuals to select an LSP who will meet the organization’s needs and expectations for competency and capability development and can be used to certify LSPs.

This International Standard shares some similarities with many of the management system standards published by ISO, particularly ISO 9001, therefore it can integrated with many other management system standards.
