If you run a regular course then why not consider getting ICS recognition.
What is an ICS recognised course?
The ICS acknowledges that there are courses run internationally that set high standards of education and are framed in a way that is applicable internationally with variations to suit local conditions. The ICS has been “recognising” urodynamic courses and training programmes for several years that conform to the ICS standards. The ICS are now offering this recognition to any discipline that fits with the ICS remit and in return for a small fee the course organisers are provided with a certificate stating that the programme conforms to the ICS standards thus giving an internationally recognised seal of approval. The ICS will also provide assistance marketing the recognised course to the ICS membership and beyond.
How long does the recognition last for?
All ICS approved recognised courses are valid for 3 years.
How do I apply and what is the process?
You simply need to complete and return the ICS recognised course application form, plus additional documents. Once all the items are received by the ICS office the applications are reviewed by the ICS Education Committee in conjunction with experts in the field of the discipline applied for. Should the application be approved then the fee is required before any certificate is issued.
