jetBlueThe International Society for Performance Improvement announced the successful accreditation of JetBlue Airways’ AME Certification Program at a presentation on August 15 in New York City. ISPI conducted the third-party evaluation, which was based on the JetBlue certification program’s alignment to a set of industry standards and code of ethics. The Assessment, Measurement, and Evaluation Certification Program was designed for JetBlue University faculty to cultivate data-driven decision-making skills and expertise within the company.

“We are thrilled to be able to announce the JetBlue AME Certification Program’s successful accreditation, which demonstrates JetBlue Airways’ commitment to excellence. As measurement and data-driven practice are becoming expected in the workplace, it will become increasingly important for organizations of all sizes to invest in high-performing learning systems and training programs designed to streamline operations and optimize the use of resources,” said April S. Davis, CAE, executive director of ISPI.

The JetBlue AME Certification Program is a four-month performance-based program that leverages applied learning opportunities. A combination of workshops, webinars, personal knowledge builders, and practice with a mentor and peers helps participants learn and apply best practices in the areas of assessment, measurement, and evaluation.

“One of the primary strategic goals of JetBlue University is to develop the capacity for evidence-based learning and decision making within JBU and throughout JetBlue Airways,” notes Warren Christie, vice president of JetBlue University. “We’re extremely proud to receive this accreditation from ISPI as acknowledgment that we’re moving in the right direction, both within JetBlue and in the performance improvement profession.”

ISPI accredits education, performance improvement and training programs, courses, and services offered by for-profit and nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, corporations, departments, vendors and consultants, associations, and military and government entities. Organizations document their adherence to a code of ethics and set of standards and undergo an interview, site visit, or both by trained reviewers. It is the goal of ISPI’s accreditation program to bring recognition to those organizations, department programs, courses, and services that produce worthy, measurable results.
