Fee models

The fees for our training accreditation

The following fees, in US dollars, apply to organisations, training bodies, training programmes and individuals seeking accreditation.

For 2021, as we complete the pilot of the accreditation scheme and in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reduced the fees to the amounts shown in brackets in red.

Accreditation/acknowledgement of work undertaken by an individual family caregiver or volunteer, who can demonstrate interest or show a commitment to developing  skills in the area of dementia care and who intends to join the dementia care development pathway with the aim of achieving a higher level of training in dementia care.
