NCC Successfully Renews National Accreditation

Apr 27, 2010

NCC is pleased to announce it has successfully renewed its accreditation with the National Commission of Certifying Agencies.  

The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) was created in 1987 by Institute for Credential Excellence (ICE) to help ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through the accreditation of a variety of certification programs/organizations that assess professional competence. Certification programs that receive NCCA Accreditation demonstrate compliance with the NCCA’s Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs, which were the first standards for professional certification programs developed by the industry.

 
NCCA uses a peer review process to: establish accreditation standards; evaluate compliance with the standards; recognize organizations/programs which demonstrate compliance; and serve as a resource on quality certification. The standards address all facets of the certification activities from governance, program development, interaction with stakeholders, psychometric integrity of the certification process to certification maintenance efforts.  
 
NCCA accredited programs certify individuals in a wide range of professions and occupations including nurses, automotive professionals, respiratory therapists, counselors, emergency technicians, crane operators and more. To date, NCCA has accredited over 200 programs from more than 100 organizations.
 
NCC's accreditation has been granted through March 31, 2015.
