Accreditation Workshops

Accreditation Workshops & Orientations for Initial Applicants

ACCET’s Accreditation Workshops educate both initial applicants and ACCET member institutions on ACCET’s Standards of Accreditation and its accreditation process. All initial applicants and institutions seeking reaccreditation are required to attend a two-day workshop, including those offering only ESOL programs. Initial applicant institutions must also attend a pre-workshop session. 

Note: Initial applicants must have an approved ACCET Document 1.4 – Inquiry Questionnaire before registering for an Accreditation Workshop.

Accreditation Workshop registrants will be provided access to the agenda, slides, and additional learning materials used during the workshop, which can be used for in-service training at their institution.

ACCET reserves the right to add, cancel, or otherwise alter the scheduling of workshops when necessary. If an Accreditation Workshop is rescheduled, ACCET will make every reasonable attempt to notify registrants and potential applicants so they may accommodate their schedules as needed.

Cancellation Policy: If a registrant finds it necessary to cancel their registration, a refund, minus a $100 processing fee, will be issued for notification received at least ten (10) working days prior to the specified workshop start date. Cancellations made after that date will not result in a refund; however, the registration fee, minus $100, will be applied toward registration at the next scheduled Accreditation Workshop.
