Industry Certifications Re-accredited!
Accreditation by one of the three nationally-recognized accreditation organizations is the ultimate credibility that can be bestowed upon a personnel certification program.
The Admissions and Accreditation Committee of the Council for Engineering and Scientific Specialty Board (CESB) recently reviewed the accreditation applications from the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) and recommended the CESB board of directors approve the re-accreditation of the certifications. Each of these ACAC certifications was accredited by CESB for another five (5) years:
CESB only accredits certification programs that require candidates have field experience – a significant difference from the other two nationally-recognized organizations. Currently, ACAC has eighteen (18) specialty programs that are accredited as engineering-related or engineer technician programs.
What Is The Difference?
Many don’t understand the difference between the credentials for training, certification and accreditation. While these words seem similar, they are very different – see http://www.acac.org/find/definitions.aspx
