M Powered Strategies, Inc. (MPS) is proud to announce that our Professional Readiness and Effectiveness Program (PREP) has been awarded accreditation by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI). PREP is the only ANSI-accredited consulting certificate program and the first approved behavior-based assessment of learning outcomes.
As the official U.S. representative to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ANSI accreditation is recognized internationally as a mark of quality and program excellence. The award demonstrates that PREP meets rigorous standards for both program design and professional development methodology, which incorporates market research and ongoing governance by industry leaders in federal government, management consulting, and education. The program offers a combination of practical experience, training and skill evaluation; upon completion, apprentices receive a certificate affirming a level mastery of specific validated learning outcomes.
PREP is an outgrowth of MPS’ Applied Management Professionals (AMP) Program, a two-month apprenticeship for graduate students, which started in 2009. In an effort to meet increasing demand from our partners and junior level professionals, M Powered Strategies developed PREP, which addresses a broader spectrum of participants and provides a longer, more robust training curriculum.
“We are proud of the successes we have already seen at the apprentice and partner level with each class. ANSI accreditation translates these achievements into an internationally recognized standard.” said PREP Director, Erin Bankey.
Thank you to all of the PREP subject matter experts, stakeholders, and apprentices for the support, hard work, and passion that made this possible.
