JRCERT accreditation of an educational program provides students, as graduates, a guarantee that the educational program will give them the requisite knowledge, skills, and values to skillfully perform the range of professional duties expected by potential employers nationwide. It also assures they will be eligible for licensure in each of the 50 states.
