Featured News 2022-06-16

We are beyond excited to announce that we have been granted initial accreditation by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) for the provision of certificate program services under ANSI/ASTM E2659-18, Standard Practice for Certificate Programs within the scopes of accreditation: ISO 9001 Foundation, ISO 22301 Foundation, ISO/IEC 27001 Foundation, ISO 31000 Foundation, and ISO 37001 Foundation.

Upon a thorough independent assessment by ANAB to determine PECB’s level of compliance against the requirements of the ANSI/ASTM E2659-18 standard, the team of ANAB assessors did not identify any non-conformities and confirmed that PECB successfully met the required criteria for Certificate Programs, such as: an instructional design plan, valid and reliable assessment of intended learning outcomes, a passing standard established through a criterion-referenced method, and a system to monitor and manage the use of the certificate. 

This new accreditation gives our clients confidence that our certificate holders have completed a prescribed course of study designed specifically to meet predefined industry requirements and that PECB has met, and continues to meet, standards for quality improvement.
