our strict graduate requirements. The LCBSI & Board of Standards Accreditation Council recognizes and
approves outside training and accredited education. Those who graduate from approved programs, can apply
directly for board certification and designations.
The LCBSI & Board of Standards does not directly offer any academic degrees or diplomas from the USA. If
you desire a degree or masters degree, simply review the 700 or more law schools, business schools, and
graduate schools that we recognize, approve of, and promote worldwide. Most of the business schools on our
LCBSI Approved list are Double Accredited Government Recognized business schools. If you first achieve an
accredited degree from one of the graduate, law or business schools that we recognize, then you may be eligible
for recognition and Graduate Certification from our academy. It is a 4-7 year certification process, but if you
start now, you can achieve our Board Certification. For those who have already completed the requirements of a
degree or masters degree and experience, Please Apply Now.
How it Works: Our Certification Policy that has the highest standards in the world.
*Applicants or Candidates at a young age should realize that they can: Apply for admission to a college, earn
acceptance to an accredited program, excel in a focus area, pass all of the course exams, and then become
eligible for board certification if they meet the other requirements such as experience, ethics and continuing
education. It can be a 4-9 year certification process depending on if you go into a masters or doctorate
program, but our Board of Standards has the most respected path and method of certification which cooperates
directly with government recognized schools.
Notice on Accreditation in the U.S.
The United States has no Federal Ministry of Education or other centralized authority exercising single
national control over postsecondary educational institutions in this country. The States assume varying degrees
of control over education, but, in general, institutions of higher education are permitted to operate with
considerable independence and autonomy. As a consequence, American educational institutions can vary widely in
the character and quality of their programs.
In order to ensure a basic level of quality, the practice of accreditation arose in the United States as a
means of conducting non-governmental, peer evaluation of educational institutions and programs. Private
educational associations of regional or national scope have adopted criteria reflecting the qualities of a
sound educational program and have developed procedures for evaluating institutions or programs to determine
whether or not they are operating at basic levels of quality.
Standards: The accrediting agency, in collaboration with educational institutions, establishes standards.
Self-study: The institution or program seeking accreditation prepares an in-depth self-evaluation study that
measures its performance against the standards established by the accrediting agency. On-site Evaluation: A
team selected by the accrediting agency visits the institution or program to determine first-hand if the
applicant meets the established standards. Publication: Upon being satisfied that the applicant meets its
standards, the accrediting agency grants accreditation or pre accreditation status and lists the institution or
program in an official publication with other similarly accredited or preaccredited institutions or programs.
Monitoring: The accrediting agency monitors each accredited institution or program throughout the period of
accreditation granted to verify that it continues to meet the agency's standards. Reevaluation: The accrediting
agency periodically reevaluates each institution or program that it lists to ascertain whether continuation of
its accredited or pre accredited status is warranted.
Types of Accreditation
There are two basic types of educational accreditation, one identified as "institutional" and one referred to
as "specialized" or "programmatic."
Institutional accreditation normally applies to an entire institution, indicating that each of an institution's
parts is contributing to the achievement of the institution's objectives, although not necessarily all at the
same level of quality. The various commissions of the regional accrediting associations, for example, perform
institutional accreditation, as do many national accrediting agencies.
Specialized or programmatic accreditation normally applies to programs, departments, or schools that are parts
of an institution. The accredited unit may be as large as a college or school within a university or as small
as a curriculum within a discipline. Most of the specialized or programmatic accrediting agencies review units
within an institution of higher education that is accredited by one of the regional accrediting commissions.
However, certain accrediting agencies also accredit professional schools and other specialized or vocational
institutions of higher education that are free-standing in their operations. Thus, a "specialized " or
"programmatic " accrediting agency may also function in the capacity of an "institutional " accrediting agency.
In addition, a number of specialized accrediting agencies accredit educational programs within non-educational
settings, such as hospitals.
Non-governmental Coordinating Agency
For more than 50 years, there has been some type of nongovernmental coordinating agency for accreditation. This
body, whatever its form, has existed primarily for the purpose of coordinating and improving the practice of
accreditation. For example, the Council on Post secondary Accreditation (COPA), which was established in 1974
and existed until December 1993, served as a nongovernmental organization whose purpose was to foster and
facilitate the role of accrediting agencies in promoting and ensuring the quality and diversity of American
postsecondary education. Through its Committee on Recognition, COPA recognized, coordinated, and periodically
reviewed the work of its member accrediting agencies and the appropriateness of existing or proposed
accrediting agencies and their activities, through its granting of recognition and performance of other related
functions. COPA itself was created through the merger of two organizations: the National Commission on
Accreditation, founded in 1949 as the first national organization to develop criteria and recognize accrediting
agencies; and the Federation of Regional Accrediting Commission of Higher Education.
After COPA voted to dissolve in December 1993, a new entity, the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary
Accreditation (CORPA) was established in January 1994 to continue the recognition of accrediting agencies
previously carried out by COPA until such time as a new national organization for accreditation could be
established. CORPA was dissolved in April 1997 after the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) was
created. CHEA is currently the entity that carries out a recognition function in the private, nongovernmental
Note: The U.S. Department of Education does not have the authority to accredit private or public elementary or
secondary schools, and the Department does not recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of private or
public elementary and secondary schools. However, the U.S. Department of Education does recognize accrediting
bodies for the accreditation of institutions of higher (postsecondary) education. If an accrediting body which
is recognized by the Department for higher education also accredits elementary and secondary schools, the
Department's recognition applies only to the agency's accreditation of postsecondary institutions.
Accreditation does not provide automatic acceptance by an institution of credit earned at another institution,
nor does it give assurance of acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is
always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer. For these reasons, besides ascertaining the
accredited status of a school or program, students should take additional measures to determine, prior to
enrollment, whether or not their educational goals will be met through attendance at a particular institution.
These measures should include inquiries to institutions to which transfer might be desired or to prospective
employers and, if possible, personal inspection of the institution at which enrollment is contemplated.

from any 501 bodies, state, or federal government agency or body. The LCBSI & Board of Standards is not a
501c3 organization and never has claimed to be a tax free or charitable entity. The LCBSI & Board of
Standards may engage in business with charitable organizations or form alliances with charities that operate
under 501 but the LCBSI & Board of Standards operates as a responsible, growing, proprietary, growth
oriented, and profit oriented association and company. The LCBSI & Board of Standards is an independent
authority similar to other American Associations. The LCBSI & Board of Standards grants certificates,
certifications, marks, designations, and charters much like hundreds of other legal educational and recognition
institutes or associations in the United States. The LCBSI & Board of Standards strictly follows the
criteria of the Ibanez decision in the United States. We encourage all members and certified members to meet
all requirements for education, experience, testing, ethics, and continuing education. The LCBSI & Board of
Standards licenses its marks and logos to others. The marks are generally licensed to individuals. The LCBSI

companies, universities, or other uses upon the consent of its board. The LCBSI & Board of Standards
outsourses to other companies for training and education that is provided online. The LCBSI & Board of

information that you submitted to the training, course, or education provider although directory information
may be exchanged. This information is limited to email address, phone number, name, employer, educational
degrees and background.

any significant length of time. With this in mind, new and growing fields of study and practice should be given
the opportunity to grow and flourish without government interference. LCBSI & Board of Standards claims no
government sanction or alliance. LCBSI & Board of Standards has formed legal relationships with professors,
college organizations, university groups and independent training associations and facilities. As accreditation
is generally not operated by any government body, The LCBSI & Board of Standards is self governing and our
members and certified members are self governing through our regulations, ethics, and continuing education, and
standards much like lawyers, accountants, or financial planners.
The LCBSI & Board of Standards is not in the business of accreditation of colleges universities or schools.
