Specific Limitations

The ASSE Certified Mark may only be used by ASSE Certified professionals with non-expired certifications.

The Mark must be accompanied, in close proximity, with the ASSE International certification(s) that the individual holds, displayed in Futura Bold at no less than 6pt font. If Futura Bold is not available, Helvetica is an acceptable substitute. The Mark may only appear in black, white, or the Certification Series’ designated color (see Certification Series color guide). A white version of the Mark may be used on backgrounds darker than 50% grey to provide sufficient contrast.

When a certification holder uses the Mark, it must make clear that the individual is ASSE certified, NOT the company he or she is employed by. It is improper to imply that an individual or company is ASSE International, that an individual is endorsed by ASSE International, or that the individual is employed by ASSE International.

ASSE Approved Provider Mark

ASSE International is a third-party certifier, not a training provider. Training for ASSE Certification is provided at more than 130 training facilities around the United States that have been approved by ASSE. To become an ASSE Approved Training Provider, schools must complete an application, which is reviewed by ASSE committees. Training materials used for courses are developed or determined by the school, but reviewed by ASSE during the application process. Approved schools must meet facility and equipment requirements and are subject to onsite visits and inspections.

Use Case

Once a school is approved, they may use the ASSE Approved Provider Mark on signage, business cards, websites, and marketing materials to indicate that they are an approved training provider.

Specific Limitations

The ASSE Approved Provider Mark may only be used by ASSE approved training providers.

Schools may not alter the shape, proportion, color, text, typography, or orientation of the Mark in any way. This includes re-coloring the Mark, rotating the Mark, repositioning individual elements of the Mark, outlining the Mark, and altering or adding text to the Mark. The Mark may only appear in black or white. The black version is preferred, but the white logo may be used on backgrounds darker than 50% grey to provide sufficient contrast.

When a school uses the Mark, it must make clear that the school is approved to provide training for ASSE International certification. It is improper to imply that a school is ASSE International, that classes are offered or taught by ASSE International, or that the school provides ASSE certification.

Art Guidelines

The ASSE International Chapter of IAPMO, LLC (“ASSE International”) considers its trademarks to be among its most valuable intellectual property assets. As such, ASSE International acts consistently to preserve the strength of its trademarks. To the extent a certified professional, approved school, or employer of ASSE Certified individuals uses an ASSE International mark to refer to ASSE International in literature or marketing, usage must follow these Guidelines. These guidelines – together with applicable program-specific listing policies – will enable users to leverage these marks to the greatest marketplace advantage.

Artwork

ASSE Certified professional, approved schools, and/or employers of ASSE Certified individuals may not alter the shape, proportion, color, text, typography, or orientation of the Mark(s) in any way. This includes rotating the Mark(s), repositioning individual elements of the Mark(s), outlining the Mark(s), and altering the text of the Mark(s). ASSE personnel certification marks should be 100% visible (not cropped). The Mark(s) may only appear in black, white, or the Certification Series’ designated color, unless otherwise approved by ASSE International. The Mark must be displayed at a sufficient resolution and size for legibility; generally, the Mark should never appear less than 1/2” tall in printed materials or less than 36px tall in digital media. Provide as much clear space (padding) around the logo as possible; we recommend surrounding the Mark with clear space of at least 1/4 the height of the “ASSE rectangle,” with the exception of the name of the certification or name of the certification holder listed under or near the ASSE Mark.
