Online Safety Training Accreditation
Generally, large well-known universities (i.e., Harvard and Princeton) and statewide colleges are regionally accredited, or offer online safety training accreditation. Smaller, private colleges may be nationally accredited. Programs of study that are regulated by national or state licensing boards may require specialized or professional accreditation (i.e., the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the American Bar Association). The United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) maintain directories of nationally recognized and specialized accrediting agencies. Programs that are nationally accredited may not transfer to a regionally accredited college. One well known accrediting agency is the Distance Education & Training Council (DETC). The DETC often accredits institutions offering correspondence or other independent study programs. Another well known accrediting and auditing agency that specializes in technical curriculum is the American Association of Certified Engineers and Trainers (AACET) However, programs accredited by the DETC as well as AACET are not as commonly accepted by regionally accredited colleges.
