Official Launch of ANSI Certificate Program Accreditation
ANSI Selects ASTM Standard for Certificate Program Accreditation

Standard Practice for Certificate Programs Released!

It's been a long time in coming but I'm finally thrilled to announce that the new American National Standard for certificate programs has just been released by ASTM International.  The official announcement can be found here and the standard can be purchased here.  This standard will provide much-needed guidance to certificate issuers on how to develop a quality certificate program and to consumers on how to identify such a program. In addition, the standard will help organizations make informed judgments about whether to develop a certification or certificate program, and should they choose to develop a certificate program, provide guidance on how to do so.

I'll be following up with educational posts about the standard soon. In the mean time, if you have any questions about the standard or its use, feel free to contact me at 317-810-0013 or [email protected]
