ANSI- What’s the Big Deal?

The AllerTrain U course has been added to our growing list of ANSI accredited food allergy and gluten-free training courses, along with AllerTrain and AllerTrain Lite. The AllerTrain Suite of Courses is already unique for offering courses that cater to various food service sectors, and for our ability to deliver these courses through multiple platforms. We are multi-faceted and can accommodate clients in whatever way is best for them.  Achieving ANSI accreditation for the AllerTrain, AllerTrain Lite and now AllerTrain U courses, sets us on an entirely different level than our competitors. To us, this is a big deal, but maybe you aren’t familiar with these credentials yourself, or their significance. Let us take a moment to explain the value of achieving ANSI accreditation so you can celebrate this accomplishment with us, and take greater pride in being a part of the AllerTrain community.

ANSI is an acronym for the American National Standards Institute. This not-for-profit organization has been providing accreditation services in the area of product and personnel certification since 1918. Applying for any certificate program to be ANSI accredited is extensive and rigorous, and the initial accreditation process can take up to 24 months. A detailed explanation of each course’s development, content, policies, procedures and data management must be thoroughly explained for consideration to take place. These areas of review are held to high standards, built upon expectations and obligations that allow both parties to maintain the confidence and trust of the marketplace.

Having this sound, third party validate that our certificate programs meet the demanding standards they’ve set, holds us to a very high level of expectation and integrity. Maintaining this accreditation gives our trainers and learners greater assurance that AllerTrain is a highly reliable program, truly leading the charge in the food allergy training space.

The trend of legislation being passed that requires food allergy training in food service establishments, at state and local levels, is only expected to continue advancing across the U.S. Many governing bodies recognize ANSI accreditation as the gold standard for these legislative changes, and choose our courses for that very reason. AllerTrain, AllerTrain Lite and now AllerTrain U are the only ANSI accredited food allergy and gluten-free training courses on the market today. Here at AllerTrain it is our promise that we will continue to stay at the forefront of food allergy safety standards and education. ANSI accreditation is the sweet cherry on top of our multi-faceted Suite of Courses.
