The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites all interested stakeholders to register and attend its upcoming Personnel Certification Accreditation workshop, scheduled May 21-22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT at ANSI headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The workshop will provide information about ISO/IEC 17024:2012, General requirements for bodies operating certification schemes for persons. The two-day course is intended for all organizations considering accreditation by ANSI to ISO/IEC 17024, an international standard increasingly recognized by the U.S. government, the certification industry, and employers.
The course will also be held on the following additional dates from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., also at ANSI headquarters:
Attendees will learn from recognized experts about the requirements in the latest 2012 edition of /ISO/IEC 17024. Registrants will participate in presentations, small group discussions, and exercises to get a better understanding of what ANSI expects organizations to provide as demonstration of compliance to each of the requirements. In addition, attendees will be able to self-assess their own operations, and identify areas needing improvement prior to applying for ANSI accreditation.
