If non-conformance's are found during the audit, the auditor will communicate any and all non-conformance's to the Sponsor Representative and/or Primary Administrator. Please note that ignorance of the requirements set forth in NCCER’s Accreditation Guidelines will not be accepted as justification for non-conformance's.


The Sponsor Representative and/or Primary Administrator will commit to an action plan to clear the non-conformance's. All non-conformance's must be corrected to the satisfaction of NCCER.


The auditor’s findings will be submitted to NCCER for approval and path forward/resolution. The Audit Program Department will be allowed 30 days from the date of the audit for all audit reports to be submitted for review.


Once non-conformance's are cleared and the audit is closed, the Sponsor Representative and/or Primary Administrator will be notified. They will also be presented with a letter of accreditation and certificate(s).
