University Certificate in Professional Development (UCPD): European Machinery Safety Requirements

The UCPD was developed due to market demand for a recognised qualification in Machinery Safety. Over a number of years, TÜV SÜD clients asked whether they could receive accredited training that could be used towards their Professional Development. The demand was such that TÜV SÜD took the bold step towards producing this unique qualification.
