WAA 03 – RSPO Certification System


Course Overview

Endorsed by the RSPO, this is a foundation-level course which provides an overview of the RSPO Certification System. This course will provide the necessary background to help in understanding what is the RSPO certification system. The course is built on the RSPO core documentation available and is presented in both lectures, video commentary and extensive supporting documentation (downloadable & viewed online).

The RSPO certification system is made up of three core elements:

  • Certification standards: the sustainability requirements (principles & criteria) which must be met.
  • Accreditation requirements: the approval mechanism for the organisations which undertake certification.
  • Certification process requirements: the required process for establishing whether the standard has been met.

The course is run exclusively online. There will be a final evaluation assessment at the end of the course.

A course credit is required in this course to meet the requirements of Wild Asia’s RSPO Lead Auditor Plus Course.
