The Service Design Network introduced the accreditation initiative based on research carried out in 2017, showing that an astonishing 90% of the respondents had a desire for an accreditation initiative, to help establish a standard and ensure higher quality within the field.
To apply for an accreditation, service design trainers go through a self-assessment and take part in a virtual interview with the SDN Accreditation Committee. After a successful application, a two-year accreditation will be granted.
SDN is proud to be able to launch an accredited service design trainer initiative to bring a new level of transparency to the market, connecting those in search of service design training to a qualified selection of training providers.
