Benefits of Accreditation

Why your organization should be accredited…

Certification is one of the most important ways of promoting and recognizing a highly skilled workforce. Certification objectives include:

  • addressing labour shortages and attracting new workers
  • assisting and improving labour mobility
  • improving quality of work through performance achieving or exceeding national standards
  • recognizing prior learning and experience which can be measured against occupational standards
  • promoting an industry driven program for recognizing competent professionals

Companies benefit from both the status and the process of accreditation.  Benefits emerge from each step of the review cycle, and continue to unfold over the long-term.  Each organization will realize a different mix of benefits based on its needs at any given time.  The Bus Council’s Accreditation is the first of its kind in the world for the bus industry and as such has early beginnings.

Here, we summarize thirty years of research on the most common and important benefits for accreditation.

Benefits of the Self-Study Process
The self-study process provides the organization:

  1. An opportunity for overall evaluation and a chance to step back and look at the “big picture”
  2. An opportunity and stimulus to review and revise policies, programs and to strategically plan
  3. A tool for benchmarking the company against current standards/best practices, and against previous and future operations
  4. Documentation and evidence of quality of the training program

Benefits of Peer Review

  • An outside perspective on the company’s programs
  • Motivation for improvements and addressing neglected areas
  • The self-regulatory process of accreditation works.  It helps to create a higher learning system in the industry that is diverse with quality yet accessible to all organizations.  Self-regulation assures self-responsibility, builds pride and a skilled workforce.
