The IMI Education and Training quality standards

on-course® incorporates a set of nine quality standards, developed jointly by the IMI Education and Training projects and supported by LifeTrain’s signatories. Course providers who enter their courses in on-course® are encouraged to provide information on which of the quality standards apply to their courses. This is entirely voluntary, but provides added information to course seekers that may help them to decide whether or not a particular course is appropriate for them.
