    deGRANDSON Global is an ISO Certified Educational Organization

    In ISO Compound Logo-2-1 - compressed October 2021, we secured certification to three education-related ISO Standards.  As a result, we now have a university-grade management system conforming to the requirements of  …

    • ISO 21001, Educational Organizational Management System,
    • ISO 29993, Learning Services outside formal Education,  and
    • ISO 29994, Learning Services – additional requirements for Distance Learning.

    We have chosen ISO 21001 certification because it is based on independent third-party assessment, unlike IRCA and Exemplar badges (which we believe are commercially compromised).  In addition, it is a ‘university grade’ standard in use globally by schools, colleges, and universities to demonstrate their competence.
