Just came across this thread and thought I would respond as a CBI rep. We have had contact from a couple of organizations about information on the comparison charts that was out of date. In each case we have requested the organization to tell us what was incorrect and where on the organization's website we can confirm the correct information. We do require the information to be confirmed either by an official representative of the organization or by viewing the information on the organization's website to ensure that it is accurate. In those cases where we have received a reply we have corrected the information.
If you have details of which information is inaccurate we are more than happy to change it if it is confirmed by an official of the organization or with a link to the webpage showing the details. The comparison page states this:
"All of the information provided on the tables has come from the organizations themselves through their website. If the website does not contain all the information on our tables we specify that it is not stated [on the website]. If you work for one of the organizations and would like to update the information, please let us know the website page where we can find the correct information and we will change it."
I am sorry you feel we have inaccurate information - please help us to bring this up to date if there are details that are wrong to ensure that those interested in comparing organizations have accurate details that will help them.
Regarding the comment that the page "was created to make CBI look good", we are a professional organization providing training of birth professionals. We offer the comparison pages with the intention that those looking for training organizations could see the main options available to them and make a decision that worked for them. Other organizations could provide a similar comparison and could focus on their strengths in those pages. We have selected criteria that we believe are important when making a decision about which training organization to choose, not simply to make us look good.
Please, if anyone believes the information about other organizations to be incorrect, contact me and let me know what is incorrect so that we can improve these comparison tables to the benefit of those looking for training.
