Accreditation: a perspective from the committee
*Iain Johnstone, Department of Statistics 

Keywords: accreditation

Accredited Professional Statistician (PStat) status is offered by ASA as a service to those of its members who find added value in a voluntarily obtained credential that provides recognition by peers that they have statistical training and knowledge, have experience in applying that expertise competently, maintain appropriate professional development, agree to abide by ethical standards of practice, and are able to communicate effectively. The talk will discuss process of applying for accreditation, the review of applications by the committee, and some observations after about a year of experience with the process.
