The purpose of NIMS national accreditation is to improve the quality of training programs as part of the national endeavor to build and maintain a globally competitive workforce while providing career opportunities to employees.
Programs that meet or exceed NIMS quality standards may be accredited. Those programs may be in industry, education or a combination of both, or inter-firm programs.
Accreditation involves a three-step process: registration of the program with NIMS, the completion of a self-study analysis and an on-site audit. There are also credentialing requirements.
NIMS accreditation sends a powerful message that the program meets national industry standards. This is an important message to internal and external customers, the board of directors, employees, future employees customers and the community at-large.Advantages to Education/Training Institutions
Achieving NIMS accreditation is also a great tool for educational institutions and also conveys an important message about the quality of the school to parents, the local governing body, state and federal partners, foundations, future students, industry and the local community.For more information on NIMS Accreditation, please contact Catherine Ross.
