Why is accreditation of training providers so important – especially in the oil and gas industry?

In high-consequence industries such as petroleum, small mistakes can become expensive incidents or dangerous – even fatal – disasters. And in many accidents, human error is the cause.

Effective training significantly reduces errors and risk… but how can you be sure a training program is effective?

Third-party accreditation by ANSI provides continual quality assurance for an outcome-based training certificate program.

ANSI Certificate Accreditation Program – ANSI-CAP

ANSI-CAP provides neutral, third-party attestation that a certificate-based training program leads to better-educated, qualified workers. When employers, trainees, and policy makers see the ANSI Accredited Mark, they can have confidence that the certificates you award represent the best in quality education and training with effective outcomes.

You’re already using standards approved by ANSI for your best practices – shouldn’t you demonstrate that highest level of quality assurance to the market?

Why seek ANSI accreditation for your training certificate program?

  • ANSI is the nationally and internationally trusted name in standards and conformity assessment
  • Employers and regulators increasingly look for ANSI accreditation to differentiate the most effective skills-based training programs aligned with critical workforce needs.
  • ANSI-CAP accreditation demonstrates to the public that a program meets or exceeds a recognized quality standard for learning – the American National Standard ANSI/ASTM E2659, Standard Practice for Certificate Programs.
  • Accreditation by ANSI can provide educational defensibility for a quality training program and can help with legal and public defensibility if an incident occurs.
  • Going through the ANSI accreditation process helps a training program keep its policies, procedures, operations, and faculty up to date and in line with current knowledge and best practices – especially critical in high-risk environments and high-consequence industries.
