ISPO welcomes applications from schools/organisations that deliver prosthetic and orthotic training programmes for the following professions:

  • Prosthetist/Orthotist
  • Associate Prosthetist/Orthotist
  • Prosthetic/Orthotic Technicians

ISPO accreditation is sought voluntarily by a prosthetic and orthotic training programme to validate against the existing ISPO Education Standards.

Why it is important? Often a sign of good management, accreditation helps identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement based on a series of standards. Often, there is no law requiring accreditation, rather accreditation is an opportunity to seek and secure validation by a recognised external body (ISPO Education Committee) comprised of expert peers.

Application Form

P&O training programmes that are interested in obtaining or renewing ISPO accreditation are invited to submit the application form.

Education Standards
