AA1000 Course Details

AA1000 online training is offered through AccountAbility-licensed training providers as an accessible, on-demand, and cost-effective offering for sustainability professionals worldwide. This license will allow trainers to teach the concepts of the AA1000 Series of Standards, so participants may improve and advance in their ability to apply the AA1000 in practical settings.

Competency-based modules in this training program include:

  • Module A: Stakeholder Engagement Practitioner Certificate, a certificate course and entry-point to the AA1000 training series which covers the AA1000AP (2018) and AA1000SES (2015).
  • Module B: Sustainability Practitioner Certificate, a practitioner-level course on the application and reporting of each AccountAbility Principle. This course, when taken with Module A, awards participants the distinction of Sustainability Practitioner.
  • Module C: Associate Certified Sustainability Assurance Practitioner Certificate, a practitioner-level course covering foundational sustainability assurance knowledge using the AA1000AS v3. This course, when completed with Modules A and B, earns the participant the Associate Certified Sustainability Assurance Practitioner (ACSAP) qualification and contributes toward a practitioner’s learning journey to achieve higher qualifications such as the Practising Certified Sustainability Assurance Practitioner (PCSAP) and Lead CSAP Practitioner (LCSAP) designation.

Providers’ development and delivery of these flexible, cost-effective, and on-demand AA1000 online training modules will occur independent of AccountAbility, with the AccountAbility Standards Team providing oversight to approve content and confirm training module compliance and quality. To learn more and start the application process for the new AA1000 Online Training License, we encourage qualified providers to apply today, or contact us at standards@accountability.org.
