On January 6, 2023, GIENC® was issued accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for the Accelerated Career Training Program based on a survey conducted in November. The three-year accreditation was issued in the category of Employee Development Services. As their highest level of accreditation, CARF describes the achievement as "an indication of [the] organization's dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served."

The GIENC Accelerated Career Training (ACT) Program is a comprehensive career development program for adults and families. Programming is available through partner organizations in a variety of formats in order to address the diverse needs of the community served by GIENC. Through workshops, programs, and clinics, the ACT program focuses on meeting members of the community where they are, helping individuals build skills to attain and maintain competitive employment. So far in 2023, GIENC has completed ACT programs with Families Moving Forward in Durham, NC, and has plans to host services at SHIP Community Outreach in April of 2023 in Raleigh, NC.
