    Pathway of becoming an accredited GESEA Diploma Centre

    Becoming a training centre using the GESEA Tools is easy. Acquire the tools, follow the tutorials and start your training activity. However, not every training centre can and should become a diploma centre.

    The application to become an accredited GESEA Diploma Centre is done through the ESGE Central Office. The ESGE evaluates the legitimacy of the application and informs the applicant centre on the potential acceptance.

    In case of acceptance, a collaboration agreement between ESGE, +he Academy, and the applicant centre is stipulated. After the successful signing of the agreement, an audit is scheduled and performed by +he Academy where the venue, infrastructure, equipment and staff are fully evaluated. Upon a positive outcome, the applicant centre can start as an accredited GESEA Diploma Centre.
