FROSIO and AMPP compared

The main differences between FROSIO and AMPP (formerly NACE) are:

  • FROSIO certification is based on a published international standard ISO 17024, previously NS 476, whereas AMPP has no basis in internationally recognized standards.
  • FROSIO is officially accredited under ISO 17024. 
  • There are no financial connections between FROSIO as a certifying body and the approved training bodies. FROSIO has income only from the certification, not from training.
  • Training bodies are approved and audited by FROSIO.
  • AMPP courses are taken separately: for each certificate level, you have to attend a separate course.
  • FROSIO course is taken just once and the level of the certificate is based on your experience.
