What is an ISO Standard? 

An ISO Standard is a document that provides requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose. 

These are produced by the International Organization for Standardization and are recognised in over 75 different countries across the world, from Albania to the USA. 


What is ISO 17024:2012

ISO 17024:2012 contains principles and requirements for a body certifying persons against specific requirements, and includes the development and maintenance of a certification scheme for persons.

In essence, ISO 17024:2012 is the internationally recognised standard for the certification of personnel competency.


How are Plantific courses certificated?

All of our eLearning is CPD accredited and endorsed by UK Certification Body against the requirements of 9.2.4 of ISO 17024:2012. Using the eLearning as a foundation, you can then progress to formal assessment on our ISO 17024:2012 aligned plant science certification scheme - to remotely examine the knowledge developed through these prior levels of eLearning.


If I don’t initially sign up to do a certificate or diploma, can my individual course credits still count toward one later down the line?

Yes, all credit received upon completion of courses can be applied retroactively toward a certificate and a diploma. However, the cost per course is reduced if you sign up for a certificate or diploma ahead of time.


Are there any prerequisites to the courses you offer?
