GCLA Accreditation Benefits


Certification with GCLA provides an opportunity to academic institutions to demonstrate their abilities and commitment to maintaining their programs' quality and that their programs are performing at the level required by the professions they serve. Programs continue to undergo periodic evaluation to ensure that they continue to meet quality standards set by that profession. The result provides lasting benefits to trainees/students, the institution, employers, the professions, and society as a whole. When you've become GCLA-certified, it means that you've received international recognition of quality; it promotes "best practices" in education, and directly involves the faculty and staff in self-assessment and continuous quality improvement processes. The certification and certification process yields a wealth of information that programs can utilize to deliver the very best education for students.
