To be eligible to deliver the Foundation Award, your organisation must first be appointed as an endorsed trainer. To find out more about being appointed as an endorsed trainer, visit the IAM Endorsed Training Scheme page.

The IAM appoints endorsed training providers all over the world. The scheme ensures that training providers deliver suitable, reputable and relevant training through knowledgeable instructors. The scheme is designed to be transparent and open to all, with reasonable and appropriate entry requirements. It is a requirement that endorsed trainers are first members of the IAM.
