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.

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: Corporate Responsibility 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 Corporate Responsibility Practitioner.

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 Certified Sustainability Assurance Practitioner (CSAP) and Lead CSAP Practitioner (LCSAP) designation.
