In the first three parts of this topic, I presented the circulars related to training requirements for the accreditation of training providers. Specifically, CDA Memorandum Circular No. 2011-01 as amended by CDA Memorandum Circular No. 2012-10 cited the conditions and eligibility requirements for accreditation.

Some questions related to the training fees collected by these training providers were raised during the forum. A participant requested if CDA can come up with standard training fees. It was answered that CDA has difficulty in setting a standard due to several factors like preference of some training providers on the venue, speakers, accommodation and food. CDA is open to received suggestions from all stakeholders regarding this matter that may serve as basis in coming up with standard rates.
You might be asking yourselves on the significant contributions of these training providers. For us at CDA, we are thankful we have partners in promoting cooperatives. Providing quality information, education and knowledge, attitude and skills to cooperative leaders, members, stakeholders improve service delivery of various cooperatives to customers both members and non-members. It is then important to sustain the operations of the accredited training providers through an effective feedback mechanism that is beneficial to the regulatory agency and the training provider.
