A diploma certificate will be provided on successful completion of all the requirements. The NMIC Diploma is widely recognised across the NHS; NMIC has been providing courses on minor illness since 1997. Initially accreditation was provided by a university for 45 points at level 6 under the national Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS). When the university adopted a policy not to accredit externally taught courses, we transferred the process to the Royal College of Nursing because at that time most of our students were nurses. As the primary care workforce has expanded to include a wider variety of clinicians, a single professional accreditation became less and less relevant. All the learning can be used for Continuing Professional Development. If credits are needed to put towards a degree or other university qualification, then you may be able to use the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) process if supported by your university.
