Determining the quality of a training program shouldn't be a guessing game. That is why COSS has sought the stamp of approval from third party organizations that help customers sort out the best from the rest. COSS has received national recognition from the following institutions:American Petroleum Institute
The American Petroleum Institute (API) recognizes the COSS Program as being compliant with its rigorous standards, and has named COSS as a certified API training provider. COSS is 1 of only 96 organizations in the world with a program that is recognized and accredited by API, and it must go through a rigorous audit every three years in order to maintain API's stamp of approval.American Council for Construction Education
The American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) has also given formal recognition to the COSS program. ACCE is the leading global advocate of quality construction education for colleges, universities and technical/trade schools. COSS is one of only 7 non-degreed program to receive this national endorsement.American Association of Safety Councils
The American Association of Safety Councils (AASC) has reviewed the COSS materials, instructional methods, policies and procedures and officially endorses the program. AASC is an international association of safety councils.
