On August 14, 2006, the Quality Management Systems of the National Council on Technical and Vocational Education and Training was approved by ISOQAR to the ISO 9001:2008 standard. In August 2013, the NCTVET successfully transferred its ISO certification to the National Certification Body of Jamaica (NCBJ).
Being ISO certified is a significant achievement for the NCTVET, as it is the only institution of its type in the region to be ISO 9001:2008 certified. This stamp of approval by ISO is indicative of the soundness and rigor found in the operations of the NCTVET; thereby giving the organization the credibility and authenticity to approve and accredit training programmes and to develop workplace standards.
ISO 9001:2008 guarantees that the NCTVET's activities are managed efficiently. It also ensures that the organization continually reviews and improves its processes to meet the requirements of international standards whilst taking into consideration its customers' needs.
