AQAI  provides accreditation for organizations that develop  curricula for professional-development training  programs. The accreditation is based on AQAI Accreditation Criteria for Curriculum Development for Work Force Qualification Programs (AC372). Getting accredited requires curriculum developers to demonstrate that the content of their curricula comply with nationally recognized standards of quality for “best practices.” AQAI requires that organizations have formally documented processes that are effectively implemented and regularly monitored to ensure their continuing suitability and effectiveness.
