Accreditation/Re-Accreditation/HPSA/CSci - deadline 1 July

16th June 2020

We are now accepting applications for Accreditation/Re-Accreditation and High Performance Sport Accreditation (HPSA).

BASES Accreditation supports the maintenance and enhancement of professional and ethical standards in sport and exercise sciences and is recognised as the benchmark professional standard within the sport and exercise science sector. It is increasingly becoming an essential requirement for many employers in the field, such as the English Premier League and the English Institute of Sport.

BASES High Performance Sport Accreditation (HPSA) is a specialist accreditation for those individuals providing sport science services to high performance sport programmes. HPSA is targeted at those with extensive experience and a track record of providing successful, structured and ongoing scientific support to high performance athletes.

Chartered Scientist represents a single chartered mark for all scientists, recognising high levels of professionalism and competence in science. BASES is a Licensed Member Body of the Science Council, enabling us to award Chartered Scientist status to members who meet the criteria.

All BASES Accredited Sport and Exercise Scientists are eligible to become Chartered Scientists, having demonstrated the required competencies through the BASES Accreditation/HPSA application process.
