The Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI) is a nonprofit 501 (C) (3) organization that meets twice a year and sets standards for all aerospace programs taught in colleges and universities around the United States and around the world.

They may also encounter “accreditation mills” – dubious providers of accreditation and quality assurance that may offer a certification of quality of institutions without a proper basis.
