IT Business Trustmark
The CompTIA IT Business Trustmark™ identifies IT companies that consistently demonstrate sound business best practices while providing quality IT services.
It is a commitment to excellence on behalf of their clients. Companies that showcase the CompTIA IT Business Trustmark logo pledge to follow a robust code of practices that meet or exceed the industry standard level of service their customers will receive.
The CompTIA IT Business Trustmark was developed through an initiative in the CompTIA UK Channel Community, constructed and validated by members of this collaborative peer group of experienced industry professionals.
CompTIA’s IT Business Trustmark is a vendor-neutral, business-level credential is designed to qualify and differentiate high-caliber solution provider organisations that operate in the United Kingdom. The Trustmark identifies the companies that demonstrate a commitment to providing top-quality IT services by following proven industry best practices. It serves as a reference to the quality of the services these companies provide and the commitment each makes to their end user customers. To receive the IT Business Trustmark, an IT service organisation must agree to a code of conduct, demonstrate knowledge of best practices, and submit an application covering a detailed list of criteria.
ByteBack Training is currently working with the CPD Standards Office towards gaining CPD Accreditation for all Microsoft Office courses.
So far twelve courses – all the Excel, MS Project, Word and Publisher courses are CPD accredited. In the coming months all courses will be CPD accredited.
What is CPD Accreditation?
Continuing professional development (CPD) is the intentional maintenance and development of the knowledge and skills needed to perform in a professional context. This could mean honing current skills, it could mean developing them to a new level, or it could mean learning new ones that will allow an employee’s job role to expand or prepare them for potential promotion.
CPD obligations are present in most professions. Most companies and organisations now prioritise them because they ensure a constantly developing workforce.
This means there are millions of professionals across the UK who are required to undertake CPD training every year.
Structured CPD gives employees a clear path to success within their current role and progression to future ones. Employees in regulated industries (e.g. healthcare, accountancy, legal work) can lose their license to operate if they don’t maintain their CPD.
CPD activities can range from formal educational activities such as instructor-led training courses, workshops or seminars, to more informal approaches such as work-based learning or mentoring. CPD can also include self-directed study such as e-learning courses and structured reading.
CPD can be provided by specialist companies (e.g. commercial training providers, independent coaches), or provided internally, in particular by larger organisations.
