Defence Institution Building School has successfully implemented a quality management system and applied modern standards to its organizational and learning activities. DIBS efforts have been recognized by the national accreditation bodies and by NATO on the international level.
International Recognition: As a result of the four-year close cooperation with NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence, DIBS developed a NATO Basic Strategic Communications Course. In May 2020 the course was certified by NATO as NATO SELECTED. Such recognition is unprecedented for Georgia. It should be noted that among the partners of the Alliance, Georgia has become the first country to have developed a NATO-certified strategic communications course. By having the course certified, DIBS became eligible for submitting a formal application for NATO Institutional Accreditation. In November 2021 NATO evaluation Team of Experts' visit to the School is envisaged. During the visit, compatibility of the School's organizational and learning management processes with NATO Quality Management Standards will be evaluated, based on which the decision regarding the School's accreditation will be made.
National Recognition: In 2020, two of the DIBS professional training programmes, Personal & Professional Competencies Development Course and Managerial Skills, were accredited by the National Centre for Educational Quality Enhancement.
