The Center for Business Acceleration (CBA) has officially become the first internationally recognized ANSI accredited program for Disabled Veterans. This opens up a whole new chapter for the disabled Veterans who have decided to pursue self-employment careers and professional skills.
The ANSI accreditation is internationally recognized and opens wide possibilities for the organization and its present and future students for entrepreneurship, professional skills, and apprenticeship programs. The curriculums covered include entrepreneurship, risk management, quality management, business management, and facilitation.
The CBA is a non-profit organization for higher learning. Its VA Accelerator Program won the Innovation Competition for entrepreneurship from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs VR&E in 2010. Since then, the company has been focused on a very specific goal: to help Veterans in all phases of entrepreneurship, from initial self-assessment and business plan preparation through the launch and growth of successful businesses. As of June 26th, 2018, the CBA has become the only personal certificate ANSI-accredited program offered through VR&E. According to American National Standards Institute (ANSI), “Federal, state, and local authorities rely on ANSI accreditation to demonstrate value and assure competency.”
“This accreditation will be a ‘game changer’ for the disabled Veteran”, says Anthony Eiland, a board member of the CBA, and explains: “It will allow us to expand our future capabilities to provide not just entrepreneurship educational training but to expand into career development, apprenticeship monitoring and tracking assistance and professional development opportunities through certification activities to the disabled Veteran community and beyond.”
