Accreditation Workshops

ACCET offers Accreditation Workshops several times a year in order to educate initial applicants and our membership on the Standards of Accreditation and the Accreditation Process, from the Application to the On Site Visit to the Commission Decision. Effective in 2017, attendance at a two-day Accreditation Workshop is mandatory for all institutions prior to submitting an ASER, except for strictly avocational/professional development institutions seeking reaccreditation that may attend a one-day accreditation workshop. During COVID-19, three-day virtual workshops will be held in place of two-day in-person workshops. ACCET reserves the right to add, cancel or otherwise alter the scheduling of workshops when necessary; every reasonable attempt will be made to timely notify registrants and potential applicants to accommodate their rescheduling needs.

Initial applicants must have an approved inquiry questionnaire prior to registering for a workshop.

Cancellation Policy: In the event that a registrant finds it necessary to cancel his/her 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. No refunds are provided after that date; however, the registration fee, minus $100, will be applied toward registration at the next scheduled workshop.

Hotel Arrangements: Participants are responsible for making their own hotel arrangements. 

Schedule: All workshops begin promptly at 8:00am and typically end by 5:00pm.

Approximately one week prior to the workshop, registrants will be provided with access to the agenda  and slide deck.  Following the the workshop, registrants have access to all learning objects used for the interactive exercises, which can be utilized for in-service training back home.

What to Bring:  Enthusiasm and laptop or mobile device.  We will keep you busy!
