The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation, a nonprofit organization in Frederick, has acquired Wayzata, Minnesota-based WorkPlace Training Inc.

The association, which offers instructor-led classroom training, said in a statement that electronic learning modules created by WorkPlace Training would complement its offerings.

Lonnie Spires, president and CEO of the association, said that customers have asked for its training in an e-learning format, which makes the acquisition a natural expansion.

The acquisition gives the association’s audience access to WorkPlace Training’s calibration and metrology training, said Paul Hanssen, founder of WorkPlace Training.
