How are PTCB-recognized education/training programs different from accredited programs?

PTCB has defined a set of requirements for program curricula that programs must meet to become PTCB-recognized. This set of content requirements is backed by PTCB’s 2016 Job Analysis. PTCB recognizes individual programs that conform to this set of standards. Because of PTCB’s program accreditations (NCCA, ANSI 17024), we do not serve as an academic accreditor. Many PTCB-recognized programs are already accredited, but accreditation is not a requirement for a program to be PTCB-recognized.
