Baldrige Examiner Training Experience (BETE)

ATTENTION: The Baldrige Examiner Training Experience is on hold.

Subscribe to receive email announcements and Baldrige news. 

The Baldrige Program is making significant exciting changes to its award process in 2024. Due to these changes and related changes to the Baldrige Examiner Training course, the BETE program is not being offered.

As an alternative, we are encouraging those interested in the BETE to register for one of the Quest for Excellence® pre-conference workshops. These workshops, facilitated by senior leaders from former Baldrige Award recipients, provide participants with information about the Baldrige Framework and the value of implementing the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence.

We also encourage you to consider registering for the full Quest for Excellence conference, so you can learn the best practices of the Baldrige Award recipients and network with the recipients, Baldrige Examiners, and others in the Baldrige community.

To learn more about the pre-conference workshops and the Quest for Excellence conference and register today, visit our Quest conference page.

For information and questions, contact baldrige [at] (baldrige[at]nist[dot]gov) or 301-975-2036.
