The ABF Teacher Accreditation Program

Welcome to the ABF Teacher Accreditation Programme, which aims to help prospective teachers develop the skills and knowledge they need to effectively teach bridge to their students.

To become an accredited teacher, you must complete a Teacher Training Programme (TTP) course and accrue 65 points.

Points can be earned by attending free ABF teacher training workshops, including the six Continuing Professional Development (CPD) days, completing online exams.
