An Accredited Innovation Training Program (AInTP)® is a training program – typically either a single course or a relatively short series of related courses – that focuses on or touches on some facet of business innovation – and that has been fully verified and subsequently accredited by the Accreditation Center of Global Innovation Institute.

There is significant value in business and academic organizations having their Innovation and Innovation-related training programs accredited by GInI as an AInTP®.

AInTP® accreditation assures all affected stakeholders that the program has been thoroughly assessed by GInI and therefore its caliber and scope conform fully to GInI’s demanding accreditation standards. No other organization in the world prescribes this same level of accreditation standard in the field of business innovation as does GInI. Consequently, accreditation by the GInI Accreditation Center is the global standard for the accreditation of Innovation Training Programs.

Innovation Training Programs that have achieved accreditation with GInI will bear GInI’s AInTP badge – GInI’s seal of assurance that the program is of a high caliber and is being delivered with excellence. They will also have their official Certificates of Completion issued by GInI.

This offers significant value, because Accredited Innovation Training Programs attract more students than do non-accredited programs, resulting in measurable economic value to the organizations delivering these programs.

GInI remains fully committed to pursuing excellence and continuous improvement in all activities relating to the GInI Accreditation Center and the GInI Accreditation Program. The AInTP Guidebook provided on this page sets forth the policies, procedures, and standards used to assess the quality and scope of individual Innovation Training Programs, and to thereafter accredit them to GInI’s standards.

Organizations wishing to pursue accreditation of their Innovation Training Programs with GInI must submit to GInI the AInTP Application with full supporting evidence. The GInI Accreditation Center will then undertake a formal assessment of the program, after which it will make its determination of the program’s accreditation worthiness.

Innovation Training Program Accreditation is valid for the life of the program, so long as the organization continues to submit its Annual Report to GInI each year, and its re-application every other year for the program’s biennial reassessment review (used to ensure its ongoing compliance with GInI’s eligibility requirements).

What Organizations Should Apply?

Any organization offering a training course, workshop, or equivalent learning vehicle (whether academic or professional) that has been properly designed, organized, supervised, and delivered to achieve a defined set of learning objectives pertaining in some way to business innovation may apply for GInI’s accreditation of that program.

If an organization offers multiple such programs, it must secure accreditation for each program separately and independently. Accreditation of any one of its programs does not infer accreditation of any of its other programs.

Accreditation Annual Reporting:

In order for a program to maintain its formal accreditation with GInI, it must submit an Annual Report to GInI once each year. This is done using GInI’s standardized Annual Report Form.

Accreditation Biannual Reaffirmation

Programs accredited by GInI must submit to a comprehensive reevaluation and accreditation reaffirmation process biannually. To do this, the applicant business must complete and resubmit to GInI the full Accreditation Application Form, which will then be reviewed by GInI in a reaffirmation review. Programs must plan ahead so as to allocate appropriate time to complete this accreditation reaffirmation process. Six months prior to their expiration date, GInI will issue the applicant notification of this. If the accreditation reaffirmation process is not completed prior to that year’s accreditation expiration date, then the program will be at risk of losing its accreditation. There is no additional fee for the biannual reaffirmation process.
