The NICET Support Statement

The NICET Support Statement may be used by anyone who recognizes the importance of NICET certification and is committed to developing and maintaining a qualified workforce.

Employers of NICET certified individuals, specifiers, government agencies, and others may use the NICET Support Statement to promote NICET certification and market their company's or organization's dedication to quality and technical competency. The Support Statement may be reproduced on web sites, company letterhead, promotional materials, and other printed matter as appropriate.

The NICET Support Statement includes the NICET Seal and the statement "We support and encourage NICET certification". The size, format and location of the statement may be changed to meet specific design needs, but it must always be linked to the NICET Seal as a single element.
