Blue Ridge Community and Technical College Receives Program Certification
The Continuing Education unit at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College has had its program certified by the Learning Resources Network (LERN), the leading association in continuing education.
“We want to congratulate Ann Shipway and her staff on this achievement,” noted William A. Draves, CAE, CPP, President of LERN. “Program Certification not only represents the following of benchmarks and best practices in our field. It also indicates the desire and commitment to improving the program and serving your community further.”
To receive certification, the organization had to submit a set of data to LERN and update that data each year. “The data represent the most important ratios in our field. A program not only has to calculate the data, but in doing so understand the critical role it plays in successful continuing education programs and decision making, as well as improving performance,” said Draves.
“These are rigorous standards. Not only do you have to measure outcomes, but follow best practices. The certification is elite, but not elitist. The outcomes are learner oriented and in the best interests in serving the community.”
