What is the process to receive an ANSI accreditation?
Why is ANSI accreditation important to the ICC Assessment Center and their Certifications?
- The government and regulators rely on ANSI accreditation because of the proven outcomes of accredited programs. Government entities look to ANSI to provide accreditation programs that improve industry practices and distinguish quality certification programs.
- ANSI is the only accreditor for standards as American National Standards.
- A report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) cites ANSI 17024 accreditation programs as a tool to make certification program more reliable and rigorous.
- A report from the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce (CSW) highlights the role played by ANSI 17024 accreditation in the development of an effective workforce credentialing market in the U.S.
- ANSI believes accredited certifications are critical, particularly in areas relating to public health, national security, safety, and the environment, which are all areas in alignment with ICC philosophy.
- The manner in which the B1 and B2 exams are accredited is the same standard to which ICC holds all of their certification exams.
Why is ANSI accreditation important to YOU, the Certification holder?
- Receiving an ANSI accredited certification is a mark of distinction. It shows that you are not about just meeting a standard, but about going beyond to pursue excellence.
- The ANSI accredited certification signals to an employer that you have undergone a valid assessment to verify that you have the necessary competencies.
- It gives you assurance that an ICC certification has gone through the rigorous process of accreditation to bring to you the most reliable and adept certification.
