Indian Council of Accreditation & Assessment (ICAA)

ICAA is an autonomous, accrediting agency, a private association assessing private training and coaching institutes offering technical, professional, and vocational coaching and training services and programs.

As we know, accreditation plays an important role in survival and success of an institute. It is a seal of authentication, a benchmark of excellence for an institute validating to people who wish to avail of their services, that the institute has qualified professors, appropriate study material and course modules to offer superior educational environment for students enrolling with them. Besides, it also has suitable equipment and technology, and abides by policies with regard to recruitment and admission.
