Accreditation program kicks off
The Australian Radio Communications Industry Association (ARCIA) has started receiving applications for its industry-wide accreditation program.
Two suppliers have been first to seek accreditation with most players expected to follow suit in the coming months.
Accreditation is a set of standards established by and for ARCIA. Programs such as this provide business with a benchmark to become recognised providers of a standardised level of service and business practice.
Each applicant is independently assessed to ensure they meet the levels expected of an ARCIA accredited professional.
Accreditation provides users and the industry with an assurance that the organisation they are dealing with is committed to the highest quality business practices, consistency and reliability in the delivery of service, professional standards and dedication to continuous improvement.
Applications are processed within 60 days. A panel of three independent consultants carries out the accreditation process and is in touch with applicants during the process.
Once an application is approved, an official certificate will be issued and is valid for three years. Accredited members will go on a special register on the ARCIA official website. A media kit will be issued detailing the official use of the accreditation logo y accredited members.
Radio suppliers and vendors interested should contact ARCIA directly by completing an application form which can be viewed and downloaded from the website: www.arcia.org.au and submit the application together with a payment of $295 addressed to: Accreditation Sub-Committee, ARCIA Inc, PO Box 1151, Hartwell. 3124.
