More than 1 million organizations and companies worldwide understand the benefits of being ISO 9001 certified. Educational institutions are beginning to recognize the importance of established standards and are seeking certification, as well. As we enter the new school year, a these schools have taken the initiative and will start the year as ISO 9001 certified: Oakwood University, Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center, DRS International School, and Wenatchee School District #246.
What are the benefits of ISO 9001 certifications for schools?
Along with the typical benefits ISO 9001 certification brings to businesses, there are a few key advantages schools will see with this new standard. When properly implemented, schools will also see:
- An emphasis in schools, from a focus on the quality of the teacher toward the performance of the institution as a whole
- The introduction of quality control mechanisms
- The creation of quality assurance systems and performance-related mechanisms in continuing education and training
With the ever-increasing competition among higher-learning establishments, ISO 9001 certified institutions have a step-up on their competitors.
