Accreditation acknowledges process, skill, experience and knowledge to execute a client brief ©️
*There are currently no national competency standards set by the Government in the UK or even in most countries around the world. Therefore SBID has created a scheme to provide recognition for varying levels of competence and practice. As SBID champion competence and training, it is no surprise that the levels of experience were graded against acquired knowledge and professional acumen. SBID Accredited is therefore the highest title of competence bestowed by SBID.
