The International Certification Accreditation Council (ICAC) has just granted both programs a certificate of accreditation, confirming compliance with ISO 17024: General Requirements For Bodies Operating Certifications Of Persons.

The International Certification Accreditation Council is an alliance of organizations dedicated to assuring competency, professional management, and service to the public by encouraging and setting standards for licensing, certification, and credentialing programs internationally. To understand the significance of this action, consider this from the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, Advanced Manufacturing Partnership Steering Committee:

“An efficient market for employees with necessary knowledge and skills depends on reliable and appropriate credentials and certifications. To succeed, any new credentials and certifications require a critical mass of national recognition, and acceptance and adoption by industry, education, and government. …Any path forward must incorporate two key functions – accreditation and certification – and result in two key outcomes –common education and training standards – to satisfy current and emerging competencies, and yield portable certifications for individuals.”
