We have also participated in all stages of development of four psychometrically validated certification exams for different clients.
National Accreditation Review Management
Having navigated multiple clients through the national accreditation process (ANSI) and the ISO Standard 17024, we understand the importance of accurate record management and adherence to strict quality guidelines. We provide solutions the simplify the process of maintaining quality assurance recognition.
Things to Know About ANSI Accreditation
The ANSI mark signals that the credential holder has undergone a valid, fair, and reliable assessment to verify that s/he has the necessary competencies to practice. Many government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Federal and State OSHA, and the FDA, rely on ANSI accreditation as it assures the competency of the certification program.
Obtaining an ANSI accreditation for your association’s certification program is an extremely valuable investment, boosting the marketability and credibility of your program. However, the application is a long, detailed, and expensive process. Having an experienced professional such as a CAM staff member pilot the application will help mitigate excess fees, time, and stress.
