Yes! NIGP will be seeking third party accreditation of our credentialing system; just as we sought, and earned, third party accreditation of our educational program from the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
Organizations can seek accreditation of their credentialing systems one year after the program is operational. It should be noted that NIGP’s credentialing system has been designed to meet the compliance requirements of ANSI’s ISO 17024 standard. The principal of NIGP’s credentialing consulting firm is an assessor for ANSI's Personnel Certification Accreditation Program. We hired the best to bring you the best!
