The Society of Standards Professionals (SES) attracts skilled people, provides them with training and guidance, and supports them in their standardization careers.

Through engagement with colleges and universities, the SES provides resources to students interested in a career in standards development and assists them in enhancing their skills. The SES helps professionals become great leaders and experts in the field of standards and is a pipeline for a successful career in standards development.

Are you involved in developing procedures, methods, technical specifications, guides, or other documents in consensus with other experts? If yes, then you are on the road to becoming an outstanding standardization professional and the SES is here for you.

The SES will help you learn the skills needed to excel in standards work, from writing your first voluntary consensus standard to standing up your very own standards developing organization (SDO).


SES is not just for those working at SDOs, we help technical committee, working group, councils, and other membership group participants from all walks of life gain needed knowledge on how to succeed in building consensus, dealing with conflict, and working in a team to develop documents. 


The SES will assist you in training and certifying your staff with our SES Certification Program.
