Prior to initiating the process for becoming a Commission-approved program sponsor, institutions must attend Accreditation 101 - Expectations and Responsibilities for Commission Approved Institutions. Though not required, it is strongly suggested that a representative from the partner entity attend Accreditation 101 for all Preparation programs. Accreditation 101 Team Member Descriptions and Roles provides a complete description of the required team members. The purpose of this session is to gain a full understanding of the responsibilities and expectations of a program sponsor.
Accreditation 101 sessions are held biannually. Session dates and links to registration are provided at the bottom of this webpage. If your institution plans to register for an upcoming Accreditation 101 session, all attendees must review the Accreditation information.
