Accreditation Workshops

ACCET’s Accreditation Workshops will 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 are also required to attend a pre-workshop session, as noted in the schedule below. 


Initial applicants must have an approved ACCET Document 1.4 – Inquiry Questionnaire prior to registering for an Accreditation Workshop.


One week prior to the Accreditation Workshop, registrants will be provided access to the agenda and PowerPoint presentation. Additionally, registrants will be provided with the 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
