This workshop is designed for initial applicants, prospective initial applicants, and individuals who do not have experience with ABHES standards and have not previously participated in accreditation visits at their institution.

This one-day training provides attendees with a comprehensive overview of the accreditation process, guiding them through every stage and equipping them with the essential requirements for a successful visit. During the session, attendees will gain expertise in how to complete the Self-Evaluation Report (SER), prepare for the on-site team visits, and effectively respond to standard violations. Furthermore, the training will include interpreting and troubleshooting some of the most common standard violations. Participants are encouraged to have their draft or previous versions of their self-evaluation reports and program effectiveness plans.
