  • What does ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Accreditation Mean?

    The American National Standards Institute is a non-profit organization that creates voluntary guidelines for products, services, processes, systems and personnel in nearly every sector in the United States. ANSI accreditation assures consistency and integrity; therefore, it provides AllerTrain certificate holders confidence in knowing that they have received food allergy training which meets rigorous industry best practices and standards.
