With spaces for popular workshops going fast, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) would like to encourage all interested participants to register for summer and fall sessions on accreditation as soon as possible.

Personnel Certification Accreditation Workshop:
Please note: The June session of this class has sold out. This two-day workshop is designed to introduce interested stakeholders to the international standard ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024, General requirements for bodies operating certification schemes for persons. Discussions focus on building an understanding of the standard’s requirements, its benefits, and why it has become the benchmark for personnel certification.

Remaining dates for this workshop are: August 5-6, October 7-8, and December 2-3. The sessions run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The August session will be held in ANSI’s New York office, and the October and December sessions will be held in ANSI’s Washington, DC office. Registration is required, and the course is recommended for representatives of corporations, organizations, government agencies, and others who either operate personnel certification programs or who wish to learn more about the ANSI accreditation process.

Certificate Issuers’ Accreditation Workshop:
This two-day workshop will introduce the American National Standard ASTM E2659-09E1, 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.

Remaining dates for this workshop are: 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. Registration is required, and the course is recommended for any corporations, organizations, government agencies, and others that are issuing certificates based on training or education courses, and stakeholders such as HR directors who are accepting individuals with certificates within their organizations.
