I am currently considering the benefits (if any) in becoming a registered IIP advisor. However, would like to hear from anyone who has done this to see if it has been worthwhile and to find out how the process works. Would love to hear from you.

I am currently a nationally registered Investors in People Adviser. Suggest interested people visit the IiP site. Application procedure for registration rigorous, maintaining registration just as rigorous.

If you are not already aware of benefits where did you pick up idea? 35% of British workforce currently working toward accreditation.
Business background important for adviser credibility.

I apologise in advance if the views I express here cause any upset for registered or intending IIP advisers.

In my opinion it is possible for a reasonably competent training and development/HRM professional who has experience of organisational and management development issues and who is possibly already a NVQ assessor or verifier, to be very effective as an IIP adviser. They would, of course, need to familiarise themselves with the standard and recognise the breadth and depth of its application within an organisational context.

I fully understand the need to apply some kind of QA approach to assessing standards such as the IIP standard, however offering advice does not necessarily require such certifiable rigour (providing the conditions set out above are applied.)

There is an inevitable tendency for all manner of hoops to be set up to "assure the quality" of standards such as IIP, EFQM and so on. Whilst initial training in these areas is often very beneficial the insights gained from practical application count for more.

Insisting that advice only be provided by registered advisers is great for cornering part of the consultancy market but not always essential.
