The International Writers' Collective is an audited and accredited Dutch educational institution and is officially listed at CRKBO.nl.
We were certified by the CRKBO (Centraal Register Kort Beroepsonderwijs), the central register for short vocational education in the Netherlands, to operate within the codes & regulations set forth by the Dutch government for tax legislation (VAT/BTW exemption) and within the European Union guidelines for quality vocational education.
We are audited by CPION (Centrum Post Initieel Onderwijs Nederland), the centre for continuing education in the Netherlands.
The audit is based on the code of conduct of the NRTO (Nederlandse Raad voor Training en Opleiding), the Dutch council for training & education.
Our accreditation gives us tax exemption status and is the reason we do not charge sales tax on our courses.
