Many of the top businesses and governmental organizations regularly send delegates to ACPOP™ approved training. To ACPOP™ this is what recognition is about. At the corporate level, the ACPOP™ courses have been developed as the result of active discussions with companies and organizations involved in both small and large projects in Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.
