Non-Institutional Skills Training for Free

Alison’s aim is to create universal standards of education and learning on every subject at every level. Our view is that access to knowledge and skills should be available to everyone regardless of nationality and should be a universal opportunity of empowerment. That’s why Alison is a non-institutional platform that directly bridges the gap between those with skills and those looking to gain skills.
It’s simple. Alison works with subject matter experts (SME’s) from education, business, industry and government agencies, on every subject for which it publishes content. These experienced professionals use their applied knowledge to create the courses on our platform. We then open up these courses to the world for free. This direct connection between the skilled and the upskillingallows us to speedily develop new courses and update existing courses in a fast moving world where knowledge isn’t static. Above all, it enables us to provide free access to the study of subjects to anyone who wishes to learn.

Continuing Professional Development, or CPD, is the process of continually developing or maintaining your professional skills. CPD helps individuals focus on how they can become a more competent and effective professional.

Due to our rigorous publishing review process, courses on Alison are now being accredited by CPD UK, an independent organisation. Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks, and the learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. This CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD requirements.

This means a certificate from a course on Alison can now be used as part of your CPD requirements (please check with your organisation’s guidelines).
