Importance of Accreditation
Accreditation is a process of self-regulation and peer review taken up by educational organizations. In order to obtain accreditation the institution has to ensure that the education they are providing meets the requirements of the accrediting body related to varied criteria laid down by them. Accreditation is an affirmation that the institution imparts quality training that is recognized by other learning institutions and employers around the world. Accredited courses undergo rigorous review and therefore, add immense credibility to non-traditional form of instructions-such as online and distance learning.
