You usually apply for registration through the National Accreditation Organisation (NAO) in your region or country (click here). Where there is no NAO, you can apply to the IUHPE Global Accreditation Organisation, using the IUHPE's online application system.

  • If you are a graduate of a course accredited within the System you must give your personal details and submit proof of graduation ONLY.

  • If you are a graduate of a Health Promotion course which is not accredited within the System or of another relevant course, you must submit personal details, give information on your 2 years' experience in Health Promotion practice (within the past 5 years) and complete a self-assessment of your competence. You must also supply the names of 2 references.

  • If you are applying on the basis of experience only (time limited option - see above), you must submit personal details, give information on your 3 years' experience in Health Promotion practice (within the past 5 years) and complete a self-assessment of your competence. You must also supply the names of 2 references.

Please read the sample application form and the Core Competencies and Professional Standards for Health Promotion BEFORE you begin your application, as ONLY practitioners meeting the criteria as described are eligible for registration and your administrative fee is not refundable. If you need more information, please contact the System Coordinator.

 

Some practical tips on how to submit your application

  • If you already have an account on IUHPE website (whether you are an IUHPE member or not), please log in with your usual account. Please note that in order to benefit from the discounts for IUHPE members you will need to log in with the same account you have used to register as an IUHPE member.

  • If you do not have an account please create one on the IUHPE website (Create Account), as you will need it to submit your application. Please note that applications submitted by any other means (email, fax, etc.) will not be considered.

  • If you want to become an IUHPE member to benefit from special rates for members only, please do so first, as discounts are valid only for active members at the time of application 

  • Once you have logged in/created your account, you will be able to proceed with the application. Once you have started the application, you can save your work at each step and come back later, using your login information. Please note that incomplete applications that have not been updated for more than 6 months will be deleted from the system.

  • You will complete the first part of the application online, to agree with the terms and conditions of the IUHPE Health Promotion Accreditation System and to complete a checklist. 

  • In the second part of the application, you will download an application form (.doc format), that you will need to fill in and save in .pdf format.

  • You will then upload the completed application form, together with any supporting documents required (.pdf format only), and submit your application.

  • Once you submit your application, you will not be able to modify it.

  • You will then be asked to pay an administrative fee through our secure payment system.

  • Once these steps are completed, you will receive an automatic response confirming that we have received your application and that it will be submitted to the Accreditation Assessment Committee at its next meeting. If you have not had a response within 24 hours, please contact the Coordinator of the IUHPE Health Promotion Accreditation System (accreditation (at) iuhpe (dot) org).

  • If your application is assessed as meeting the required criteria, you will receive an email notification and you will be asked to pay the registration fee to complete your registration. Once this last step is completed, you will be able to download your Certificate of Registration and your name will appear in the list of practitioners in the online Register.

  • If your application is not successful you will receive an email notification indicating the reasons why. You can re-apply at any time.

Please note that

  • Applications are open all year round and are assessed on a rolling basis.

  • Formal notification of the outcome of the assessment process may take several weeks, depending on the number of applications being reviewed by the Accreditation Assessment Committee.

  • By submitting your application you authorise the IUHPE to publish your name in the list of registered practitioners, should your application be successful.
