Posted on July 24, 2017 with 0 comments

USGIF’s Certified GEOINT Professional (CGP) certifications were recently granted accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), the accrediting body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE).

NCCA is a third party accrediting organization and its Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs were created in 1977 and updated in 2003 to ensure certification programs adhere to modern standards of practice for the certification industry. USGIF joins an elite group of more than 120 organizations representing more than 270 programs that have received and maintained NCCA accreditation.

“Having a third party look at our program lends credibility and gravitas to our certifications,” said Dr. Darryl Murdock, USGIF’s vice president of professional development. “The fact that the program is NCCA-accredited speaks volumes of the professionalism of our team, and is yet another example of the value USGIF brings to our professional development offerings.”
