Micromeritics now offers Accredited Continuing Education

Micromeritics Instrument Corporation is proud to announce its national accreditation as a Post-Secondary Avocational/Professional Development Institution by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET), an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education.  Attendees of Micromeritics Learning Center courses can now earn nationally accredited Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completion of instrument operator training.  As a result of this prestigious recognition, Micromeritics Learning Center has relocated all its educational information and training to www.micro.edu .

Micromeritics Instrument Corporation’s dedication to quality continues to build on its foundation of ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems for designing, manufacturing, and servicing of analytical instruments since 1994 certification and providing cGMP compliant material science laboratory services since 2004.

Since 1989, Micromeritics has been providing high quality instrument operator training courses to scientists, engineers, and technicians as an added benefit to using our technology.  Today, courses offered include in-depth theory lectures by staff scientists as well as hands-on instrument operation with applications experts.  Since mid-2011, Micromeritics began demonstrating the high quality nature of the training by conducting a rigorous self-examination process.  The resulting self-examination report was submitted to ACCET, which then dispatched a team of nationally recognized education experts to evaluate the Norcross, Georgia training facility.  All procedures, course materials, and documentation were reviewed and several strengths were noted in the team report.  Based on the team’s finding, ACCET’s Accrediting Commission granted Micromeritics Instrument Corporation national accreditation.

ACCET has been granting accreditation to schools since 1974 and has been officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education since 1978 as a “reliable authority” on accrediting institutions providing quality education.  ACCET is also ISO 9001:2008 certified since 1998, the only recognized accrediting agency to be certified at this prestigious level.  For more information about ACCET, please visit www.accet.org.

Micromeritics customers attending Micromeritics Learning Center courses can now enjoy the benefits of this nationally recognized accreditation and doing business with a quality-driven organization.

As an added benefit to celebrate this achievement, MLC is offering a 25% discount on all 2013 course registrations until January 1, 2014.  Go to www.micro.edu for more details.
