THE USP's Centre for Flexible Learning (CFL) has gained international recognition by the International Board of Standards for Training, Performance and Instruction.
This is set to provide staff members and students with the comfort of knowing that CFL services within the university are of an international, acceptable standard, according to a USP statement this week.
"This is an excellent achievement and great timing," said Pro Vice-Chancellor Research and International Professor John Bythell.
Prof Bythell was responding to comments by the president of the board, Dr Fernando Senior.
He had said: "Thank you for allowing us to review your program (and) we expect to remain in contact and continue to receive updates of the results of your training program.
"Yet, we are also aware that it has taken you even more time and dedication to design and create the programs for which we now grant you an external recognition."
