Accreditations, Approvals, and Affiliations


Accreditations

  • BIR Training Center is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award certificates. Founded in 1912, ACICS accredits institutions that offer programs in a variety of fields. It is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). In December of 2016, the US Department of Education (USDE) made the decision to no longer recognize ACICS as an accreditor. Loss of ACICS recognition by USDE may have an adverse impact on our students. ACICS is currently appealing this decision and, on March 31, 2017, ACICS filed a motion for summary judgement in U.S. District Court. Even though ACICS is appealing the decision, BIR Training Center started the necessary steps to obtain accreditation through another agency.
