The Association also has 353 associate, development and provisional members in 45 countries.

The LEEA database includes more than 10,000 practitioners who have qualified as testers and examiners through its examination and registration schemes.

LEEA are members of the CPD Certification service.

CPD member organisations have had their educational and training activities independently certified for industry-wide and pan-disciplinary CPD purposes.

CPD – Continuing Personal or Professional Development – is the term that describes a commitment to structured skills enhancement and personal or professional competence.

The CPD Certification Service helps organisations provide certified CPD and acts as a point of contact for those seeking to obtain certified CPD material.

It supports further learning initiatives being undertaken by Government, professional institutions, trade associations, individual organisations, training providers, suppliers.
