The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS) have awarded Centre Accreditation to Tipton Training for its Courses in the UK and Ireland. With this Tipton Training becomes the first private post graduate dental education provider in the UK to have an RCS England accredited centre. The provisional accreditation conferred on Tipton Training in December 2018 and was ratified by the RCS Council on the 13th of June 2019.
This means that, in addition to the valuable skills a Tipton Training course delivers, delegates can be rest assured of the quality of education and methods of training has been reviewed by the best in the industry. The entire Level 7 Course portfolio successfully meets the criteria and standards for accreditation.
To achieve accredited status, Tipton Training underwent a comprehensive review from a RCS panel, formed of subject matter and quality assurance experts. Specifically, areas such as facilities, resources and faculty, education portfolio and infrastructure and quality management processes were assessed.
Senior management from Tipton Training – including Professor Paul Tipton (Clinical Director), Vivek Gupta (CEO) and Les Pringle (Head of Course Operations) – also discussed course development and delivery, decision-making processes and general management.
As a result of this accreditation:
1. Going forward, the Enhanced CPD hours delivered by Tipton Training will be RCS England Accredited
2. Course completion certificates and Enhanced CPD certificates will carry the RCS England Logo
“With this RCS accreditation, our delegates can rest assured that Tipton Training courses are of the very highest standards. Becoming the first RCS England accredited private dental education center in UK, is exciting but also reinforces our commitment to quality dental education that adds real clinical skills.” explains Vivek Gupta, CEO of Tipton Training.
“Our Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma courses also have Level 7 (Masters Level) status. This means that Tipton Training alumni possess a real advantage when applying for competitive positions, or when looking to expand the range of treatment options for their practice patients.”
