Two more organizations have been accredited under ANSI’s Certificate Accreditation Program (ANSI-CAP):
- National Apartment Association Education Institute for its Certificate for Apartment Maintenance Technician (CAMT)
- The National Graduate School of Quality Management for its Homeland Security Certificate, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate, and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate
I love Robert Gee's (president and founder of The National Graduate School) quote:
“Our work with ANSI on the accreditation of our Homeland Security and Lean Six Sigma certificates was a challenging, educational, and highly productive process. The ANSI system of analysis and review is unparalleled in the industry. We teach quality systems in our curriculum, and were able to demonstrate the same level of quality in our processes for ANSI. Being recognized by your peers as a leader, especially in our field of endeavor, is the highest honor.”

If you are considering developing a certificate program, improving an existing one, and/or applying for ANSI accreditation, here are two upcoming events for you:
Creating a Certificate Program with Meaning at ASAE's Annual Meeting & Expo on Monday at 8:30 in room 405.
ANSI's Certificate Issuers Acceditation Workshop, September 23, 2010 to September 24, 2010 - 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM in DC. The two-day workshop is designed to introduce interested stakeholders to the American National Standard ASTM E2659-09 and the requirements for achieving ANSI accreditation. Limited to 12 attendees to ensure everyone's program-specific questions can be addressed. Remember if you pay for the workshop and then apply for accreditation, the course fee will be applied to your application fee! Hope to see you there.
