DSI issues accreditation for exams that are submitted to us. This page explains how to submit accreditation requests, and provides a list of accredited exams.
In brief, accreditation means that the DSI Accreditation Committee, composed of a variety of experts in the field, have evaluated and approved the qualifications of third parties in accordance with the learning objectives.
Parties may submit their qualifications to DSI for accreditation. If they meet the requirements, then earning a relevant accredited qualification will make you eligible for DSI certification.
Starting in 2020, DSI will also accredit educational institutions as part of the Life-Long Learning programme.
How to submit your training programmes and exams
Qualification providers can submit programmes and exams to the secretary of the DSI Accreditation Committee (see contact details below).
Please note: DSI can only evaluate training programmes that conclude with an exam.
DSI needs the following information for accreditation:
An accreditation request costs a one-time fee of € 5,000 (VAT not included) per programme. Accreditation can be extended for another year for a fee of € 1,500 (VAT not included) per programme.
Learning objectives may be updated from time to time, either due to amended legislation or regulations, or because changing professional practice makes it necessary.
When the learning objectives are updated by DSI, then the programme must be re-evaluated for accreditation.
If a DSI-accredited qualification is updated by a training organisation or participant, then DSI must be informed immediately to determine if re-accreditation is necessary. No additional fees will be charged for this service.
You can submit your accreditation request or questions to:
DSI Accreditation Committee
Mr. M.A. van der Lecq, Secretary
1001 AR Amsterdam
Or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
