Workshop Details

The 2021 NCCA Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs

  • Who:
    • Programs applying for NCCA accreditation
    • Programs preparing their NCCA reaccreditation application(s)
    • Programs looking to familiarize themselves with the revised 2021 NCCA Standards
       
  • What: In this portion of the program, we will walk through the 2021 NCCA Standards and the requirements to meet the essential elements of each Standard. We will also provide a better understanding of the NCCA accreditation process. Leave with ideas for how becoming NCCA-accredited can benefit your program and enhance its value. You also have the opportunity to make connections with other credentialing professionals attending the workshop. 

Accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17024 Standards

  • Who:
    • NCCA-accredited programs that are considering adding accreditation to ISO/IEC 17024
    • Programs considering applying for dual accreditation to NCCA and ISO/IEC 17024
       
  • What: There is significant overlap of the requirements of the NCCA Standards and the ISO/IEC 17024 Standards. As a result, programs can pursue dual accreditation and receive the benefit of greater efficiency and cost savings. Review the areas that overlap, and delve deeper into detail on the ISO/IEC 17024 requirements that are not already satisfied through the NCCA Standards.
