What is a partner course?
Partner courses are courses offered by the ZDHC Academy, but initiated and owned by external like-minded organisations that collaborate with ZDHC. They are believed to be an added value to the ZDHC Academy portfolio.
What are the partner course criteria?
Partner courses should be provided by like-minded organisations across the textile, apparel, leather and footwear industry that collaborate with ZDHC. The format of the training can be either e-learning (self-paced), in-person with a qualified trainer or hybrid. Before a partner course is added to the ZDHC Academy, ZDHC will review and approve the content.
How can you enroll for a partner course?
You can either enroll yourself directly on the ZDHC Academy Platform, or on the Platform of the partner organisation. This depends per partner course and is described in the course description.
Does the learner receive a certificate acknowledged by the ZDHC Academy when completing a partner course?
A ZDHC Academy certificate will only be issued when the examination is performed on the ZDHC Academy Platform. This depends per partner course.
Are partner courses paid courses or are they for free?
This depends on the partner course. Some courses are free of charge whilst others include a small fee. The details can be found in the course description.
Why is the ZDHC Academy hosting partner courses?
The ZDHC Academy is hosting courses about chemical, wastewater and environmental management, but by no means wants to design new courses when there are already good courses available about a certain topic. Therefore, if the ZDHC Academy identifies a course that is of great added value to the existing portfolio, we will try to include that partner course on our platform.
