Insurance can be a complex subject, with many internal variables that need to be examined before a wise decision can be made. For this reason, anyone considering personal or business insurance should first seek the advice of a reputable broker or agent.
First Step to ANSI Accreditation of the CPBD Exam
Thursday and Friday NCBDC Chief Staff Officer and AIBD Executive Director, Steve Mickley, is attending the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Personal Certification Accreditation Workshop. The workshop is the educational introduction for those considering accreditation by ANSI to the international standard ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 – General requirements for bodies operating certification schemes for persons.
This International Standard has been developed with the objective of achieving and promoting a globally accepted benchmark for bodies managing the certification of persons. This standard is being increasingly recognized by the U.S. federal government, the construction industry and the certification industry.
Whether the NCBDC Board of Examiners pursues the ANSI accreditation or not, the workshop is a valuable tool for understanding the increasing acceptance of this globally recognized benchmark in personnel certification. Accreditation by a fair, impartial and globally recognized third party provides assurance that our certification program is engaged in a continuous review and improvement of its quality, that it meets internationally publicized standards in the personnel certification, and that it is accountable for achieving what it sets out to do.
