Today I am attending the Certification Networking Group's meeting on certificate programs and I thought I'd live blog a bit. The presenters include Roy Swift from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Jim Kendzel from the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA) and Christian Smith from Learning Resources Network (LERN). Both ANSI & NOCA plan to offfer accreditation of certificates, so I anticipate a lot of discussion about the potential standards for accreditation. More to follow.
Update: In December of 2008, Jim Kendzel indicated that NOCA is now unsure of whether they will offer accreditaiton of certificate programs.
