Under my Holistic Weight Loss page I mention I am an IAOTH CPD certified Nutritional Therapist. So what do these acronyms mean? IAOTH is The International Association of Therapists. This association is international, meaning the United States and countries outside of the United States.
CPD is a certification service, which is an independent body that ensures qualifications are in line with the most current professional standards.
This means anyone who completes their course(s) that are CPD certified complies with universally accepted principles of Continual Professional Development (CPD) and have been structured to meet the criteria of personal development plans.
CPD certification means that the content and structure of the course(s) have been independently assessed and approved for multi-disciplinary and industry-wide continuing personal and professional development purposes.
