What does Accreditation mean to you and your educational experience?

The Value of Accreditation Accreditors establish best practices, generally referred to as “standards,” and then ask a school to show how that school is meeting (or exceeding) those standards. By attending American Institute of Beauty, an NACCAS accredited institution, you should have confidence in knowing that you are attending a school that has undergone a rigorous accreditation process that has evaluated educational quality in the programs offered and that AIB- an Accredited School has shown that it is meeting NACCAS established standards.

Accreditation relies on experienced individuals – administrators, educators, and subject matter specialists – to review the quality of the education provided by your school. The accreditation process evaluates areas including the qualifications of administrators and faculty delivering the education; the relevance and adequacy of the curriculum, equipment and learning materials; and the achievements of students in graduating from a program and subsequently obtaining employment in the field. A school that has successfully completed an accreditation review should have in place the instructional resources and student support services necessary to assist you in achieving your educational goals.
