The National Commission for Credentialing Agencies (NCCA), an industry leader, has accredited ASHA’s two certification programs (CCC-A and CCC-SLP).
NCCA accreditation demonstrates a commitment to excellence in administering a professional certification program. ASHA’s programs are the only NCCA-accredited programs in audiology and speech-language pathology.
“ASHA continuously strives to offer excellent certification programs, and the NCCA accreditation provides truly noteworthy third-party validation that we are meeting this important goal,” says Elise Davis-McFarland, ASHA president.
The voluntary NCCA accreditation process includes rigorous and lengthy review and evaluation of the certification processes and products. NCCA-accredited programs encompass many professions and occupations, including nurses, respiratory therapists and counselors. Its compliance standards exceed those of the American Psychological Association and U.S. Equal Employment Commission, and are consistent with The Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing.
With NCCA accreditation, “those served by ASHA-certified audiologists and speech-language pathologists can take comfort knowing they are in the care of someone who has earned a credential that has been judged to be a sign of professional excellence,” Davis-McFarland says.
