IACET Accreditation:

Atlas Training, Inc. is an IACET-accredited provider. The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to setting the standard for training providers. An accreditation from the IACET serves as a stamp of approval for those who provide classes for continuing education.

Obtaining IACET accreditation is a long, rigorous process that requires internal assessment and review of program systems and processes to ensure the delivery of well-designed, effectively implemented professional training and continuing education to enrolled participants. In order to achieve Accredited Provider status, Atlas Training completed an intensive application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated adherence to the 10 categories of the ANSI/IACET 2018-1 Standard, which addresses the design, development, administration, and evaluation of our programs. As a result of these efforts, Atlas Training was recognized as an Accredited Provider as of May 2021.

The National Workforce Registry:

The National Workforce Registry is a national organization that evaluates the quality components of early childhood training organizations and lists them on an approved registry if they meet the quality requirements. Through the review process, the NWR ensures that:

  • Instructors have knowledge of adult learning principles.
  • Instructors have professional knowledge and qualifications to teach in the content area of the training.
  • Training provided has clearly stated learning outcomes for the participants.
  • Training content is appropriate to and designed for early care and education or afterschool workers.
  • The hour or CEU value of training is consistently and properly calculated.
  • Training completion is properly documented and stored.

Atlas Training has met these requirements and has therefore been recognized by the National Workforce Registry as an approved training provider.
