Mark Damitio, Programme Manager for grants and accreditation of the International Association of Directors for Law Enforcement Standards and Trainings (IADLEST), handed over a IADLEST accreditation certificate to Branko Vukoja, Director of the Agency for Education and Professional Training (AEPTM). This certificate is a recognition that the Agency fulfills the international training and performance standards of police academies.

IADLEST accreditation programme has been developed by experts for training and public security standards. In the course of a 2-year accreditation process, the Agency for Education and  Professional Training made an effort to take on activities, where necessary, to bring in line the conditions with the best world practices and standards. In September last year IADLEST certification and accreditation team made a final assessment in the Agency for Education and Professional Training, which is the first of three academies in the nation that began the accreditation process. The team of assessors was provided the information about the Agency's performance in relation to 53 standards that cover the issues of statutory and regulatory compliance, mutual aid agreements and policies, staffing, operations, facilities, record keeping, training development, training delivery, students, information technology, fiscal and equipment.

'We have received a very important certificate that is an obligation and motivation for us to try to improve our work in future ', stated Director Vukoja at a ceremony organized on this occassion.  Mate Miletić, Assistant Security Minister, stated that this certificate ' is a victory of knowledge and profession and persistence of people to go beyond  their own capacities while aspiring to achieve something.'

' You can be proud of the fact that this Agency is just the second educational institution in the region that has received such a prestigeous recognition, after the Academy in Kosovo. This is the result of hard work and committment of the Agency's staff, of all of you who are here today and you should be proud of that. The accreditation ultimatelly confirms that the Agency fulfills the highest international tgraining standards. It means that you are doing the right thing “ – stated  Benjamin Rockwell, Director of  INL (Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the U.S. Department of State ) in BiH, who received from Director Vukoja a plaque of appreciation for his support to the efforts of the Agency for Education and Professional Training..
