BioSoteria eLearning Executive Michelle Flewell Selected for Accreditation Council

BioSoteria announced today that Michelle Flewell, the company’s Vice President of eLearning and Informatics, was appointed by the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) to serve on the Certificate Accreditation Program Advisory Council. Flewell will be attending the first meeting of the Council, which is charged with developing policies and procedures for ICE accreditation of assessment-based certificate programs, on March 4, 2010, in Washington, DC.

(PRWEB) March 3, 2010 -- BioSoteria, Inc., a drug safety services and education firm, announced today that Michelle Nolin Flewell, CPLP, the company’s Vice President of eLearning and Informatics, was appointed by the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) to serve on the Certificate Accreditation Program Advisory Council. The Council was recently formed to develop policies and procedures for ICE accreditation of assessment-based certificate programs.

An assessment-based certificate program (ABCP) is a non-degree-granting instructional training program that evaluates the participant’s accomplishment of intended learning outcomes and awards a certificate only to those who meet the proficiency standard of the assessment. It differs from a certificate of attendance, which indicates only that the participant was present at the training program, and a professional certification, which is a time-limited recognition that an individual has met standardized requirements in skills, knowledge or competencies.

ICE, formerly known as the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA), published the first standard for certificate programs in July 2009. ICE 1100 – Standards for Assessment-Based Certificate Programs – specifies essential requirements for certificate programs and provides guidance to program providers, consumers (both participants and employers) and others on what defines a high-quality program. The ICE standard has been accepted as an American National Standard by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

“There is a lot of interest and confusion in the industry related to certificate programs, including those offered in drug safety and pharmacovigilance,” said Michelle Flewell, who leads the development of BioSoteria’s eLadder™ Safety curriculum. “I am pleased to serve on a council that will help training providers develop assessment-based programs that follow internationally recognized standards for educational quality, and to clarify to training participants and employers what an accredited certificate represents.”

Flewell will be attending the first meeting of the Certificate Accreditation Program Advisory Council tomorrow, March 4, 2010, in Washington, DC. The Council is charged with the development of policies and procedures defining the governance and operations model for the ICE accreditation services program, as well as the implementation of a pilot accreditation program.
