The only school of Prosthetics and Orthotics in the world

CSPO is the only school of Prosthetics and Orthotics in the world to hold ISO 9001:2000 certification for its education programme. ISO 9001:2000 is a set of universally understood and accepted quality practices; a comprehensive set of rules that, if followed, will improve the performance of an organisation. The main goals of the ISO 9001:2000 standard are customer satisfaction and continual improvement.

ISO certification gives us a system we can use to continue to improve our work and demonstrates that we are a quality organization, recognized to an international standard.
