To address domestic needs, IAS provides accreditation for organizations that provide professional-development training programs only in the United States and its territories. The accreditation is based on IAS Accreditation Criteria for Training Providers and Training Course Developers (AC371). Getting accredited requires training agencies to demonstrate they are competent, that their trainers are qualified, and that the curricula meet recognized standards. The accreditation process involves an evaluation of the training agencies corporate structure, facilities, staffing, curriculum, program development and administration.
