ABA UK offer a wide range of training and assessments meeting the requirements of ABA International.

Following the successful development of the 24/7 accessible international skills register and associated quality assurance body in the form of the International Standards & Accreditation Council (ISAC) ABA continues to promote the harmonisation of skills qualifications worldwide. These new innovations led by leading awarding bodies, organisations and experienced individuals from different countries ensure certification credibility (ISAC regulated & approved), accessibility (quick online verification) and continual enhancement (sharing best practice) via international standards-setting events & awarding body audits.

Through these processes ABA is achieving the ultimate aim of reducing barriers to employment & mobility of skilled individuals and removing any unnecessary requirements for duplication of existing certification already held by that skilled person.
