ARSC was chartered as a not-for-profit corporation on October 7, 1997(Charter #1462953) and is funded by the participating Safety Organizations each calendar year.
The success of ARSC is determined by safety training organization's committed to the sharing of resources, expertise and best practices. The results are shared cost with Association members who maintain and utilize current, state of the art training programs for a fraction of the development cost, while ensuring program integrity by reciprocal members via audits and program reviews.
This in mind, the mission statement adopted by the ARSC Board of Directors on December 16, 1998 reads as follows:
The mission of the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils, Inc. (ARSC) is to provide consistent and cost effective reciprocal safety education that conforms to regulatory standards and industry accepted practices.
ARSC is committed to continuous improvement in all aspects of operation. This includes upgrades to our curriculum, audit process, test procedures including validation, and security measures.
