Royal Air Force accreditation


We know you’ve worked hard for your Royal Air Force course and we also know that the skills you gained are transferable – especially leadership and management skills.

At ILM, we can help you to directly translate the leadership skills and knowledge you have gained through your RAF training into a qualification that civilian employers understand and value.

We’ve mapped your qualifications, so on top of your MOD certification, we can get an ILM one too. See below the equivalent of each.
