Meet the team


PD:Approval is the brainchild of Tom Bell, whose aim is to bring quality assurance services to new and established membership organisations. A key benefit is that PD:Approval is a completely independent organisation, whose overriding passion is ensuring that professionals in the sectors we work in can access safe and effective training to progress in their careers.

Having started with a contract with the Sports Therapy Association, we were delighted to gain our second contract with the Register of Exercise Professionals in March. We are actively engaged in looking at other sectors to complement those we already have, to broaden the scope of professionals looking to further their careers through endorsed training.
