New Heroes achieves LPI accreditation as a learning provider


Netherlands, 19 April 2017: Dutch online training specialist, New Heroes, achieves the highest benchmark of excellence against which other learning providers are measured, joining a growing number of organisations in the Netherlands demonstrating their commitment to raising standards though Institute accreditation.

The Learning & Performance Institute (LPI), the foremost accreditation and membership body for the learning sector, is pleased to announce that New Heroes, an online training specialist in personal empowerment, communication and management skills, has achieved accredited Learning Provider status.

The LPI accreditation programme for learning providers independently evaluates and endorses a provider's ongoing commitment to outstanding customer care, integrity and operational efficiency. A recognised standard in the industry today, the programme employs a highly robust framework, developed over many years by learning experts, and validated by data from thousands of organisations, to measure, benchmark and improve learning capabilities.

New Heroes' LPI accreditation puts the Dutch company at the forefront of business excellence as a service provider to the learning and development industry and is a further endorsement of its position on quality of service and innovation.

Accredited learning provider

Commenting on New Heroes' accreditation, Henriette Kloots, LPI Benelux partner, said, "I am very delighted that New Heroes, as a fairly new company in the Netherlands, is now an accredited learning provider with the LPI. Their drive to create a learning solution that will truly make behavioural change happen with online learning is new in our region and has disrupted the learning market in the Netherlands. They still have the energy and speed of a start-up and yet are focused on quality and making sure they deliver what is needed for the learner, both in B2C and B2B markets. They should be very proud of themselves and I am happy we will be working together to keep the quality standards for online learning high!"
