What Is Accreditation?

AABInternational accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for aviation programs, nationwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive review process.

Accreditation ensures that professional programs achieve and maintain a level of performance, integrity, and quality that entitles them to the confidence of the educational community and public they serve.

Members of AABInternational

  • establish criteria for accreditation,
  • arrange site visits,
  • evaluate those institutions and professional programs seeking accreditation,
  • and publicly designate those programs that meet the criteria.

Although accreditation is basically a private, voluntary process, accrediting decisions are used as a consideration in many formal actions by governmental funding agencies, scholarship commissions, foundations, employers, counselors, and potential students.
