“The NCSA (Newborn Care Specialist Association) would like to offer a formal apology to the Newborn Care Training Academy, Brittany Hunt and Haleigh Haggerton Almquist for cancelling their membership to the NCSA 2 years ago. We have followed the NCTA for the last couple of years and find them to be a reputable and honorable teaching company and would be honored if they consider rejoining the NCSA as an approved company. The allegations brought against them by others were recently discovered to be unfounded and for that we deeply apologize.”
You may have come across this statement from the Newborn Care Specialist Association and thought, “Huh, what happened?”
Approximately two years ago, an industry competitor slandered the NCTA with personal accusations of unprofessional conduct against Brittany and Haleigh. For those of you familiar with the NCTA, this is laughable, but the slander did result in a severing of ties with the NCSA. Fortunately, the truth eventually came to light and the Newborn Care Specialist Association has issued an apology on their Facebook page.
We are proud to have patiently taken the high road throughout this ordeal and hope it can serve as a positive example of organizational behavior and professionalism. We look forward to working with the Newborn Care Specialist Association in 2017 and are optimistic about the growth potential for our industry. Stay tuned for more information about what certification will mean for students who have taken our course over the last year and half.
