What Is NCCA Accreditation?

The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) is an impartial, third-party that set the standards for certification program practices and administration. By maintaining accredited certification programs, RESNA is demonstrating to your employer, the assistive technology community, and to yourself that you have the skills and knowledge required to complete your job as defined by the leading authority in the credentialing industry. 

NCCA Accredited Programs are in compliance with the NCCA Standards for Accreditation of Certification Programs in the following areas:

  • Purpose, Governance, and Resources
  • Responsibilities to Stakeholders
  • Assessment Instruments 
  • Recertification
  • Quality Assurance
  • Maintaining Accreditation

Who Issues NCCA Accreditations?
