Certificate Issuers’ Accreditation Workshop:
This two-day workshop will introduce the American National Standard ASTM E2659-09, Standard Practice for Certificate Programs, and the Institute’s Certificate Accreditation Program (ANSI-CAP). Attendees will learn about the requirements for developing a quality education/training course that has an assessment at the end to determine if the learning outcomes have been achieved. The workshop covers such areas as: terminology, significance and use of the standard, requirements for certificate issuers, and certificate program and certificate issuance and use.

Dates for this workshop are: February 11-12, April 29-30, July 8-9, and October 14-15. The sessions run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and take place at ANSI’s Washington DC headquarters.
