NOCTI and Nocti Business Solutions have earned full accreditation from the International Certification Accreditation Council (ICAC). This recent accomplishment ensures that a neutral third party has properly evaluated both organizations and held them up to international standards. ICAC accreditation signifies that NOCTI's career and technical education (CTE) assessments and certifications, as well as Nocti Business Solutions' technical skill assessments, follow the best international industry practices and standards.
The ICAC 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. The ICAC's recent accreditation of NOCTI and Nocti Business Solutions confirms the validity of their programs. NOCTI provides performance testing, college credit, and other CTE credentials, and Nocti Business Solutions provides standardized learning, custom test development and prior learning assessments.
“The ICAC accreditation underscores that NOCTI and Nocti Business Solutions provide quality services to those involved in validating technical competence," NOCTI President and CEO John Foster said. "The accreditation demonstrates that internal processes and procedures meet the internationally accepted standards of ISO 17024. We look forward to a continued relationship with ICAC and advocating their services to our partners."
Foster believes that the organization's work is important not only to CTE communities but also to the entire nation’s economy, infrastructure and ability to compete globally with the likes of Japan, China and Europe.
The standards outlined in ISO 17024 focus on conformity assessment and regulate general requirements for certification. These standards create a global benchmark for personnel certification programs, helping guarantee that they operate in a consistent, comparable and reliable manner worldwide. Those with certifications from organizations that meet these standards, such as NOCTI and Nocti Business Solutions, have skills that translate internationally.
