This one-day workshop enhances attendees’ understanding of the accreditation process. Participants will have the opportunity to dive deeper into the various steps of the accreditation process, ranging from the creation of the Self-Evaluation Report (SER) to preparing for the on-site team visit, as well as responding to team reports. The presenters will also discuss the interpretation of multiple standards and provide guidance on ways to prepare for and adhere to them. Attendees are encouraged to bring their draft self-evaluation report and program effectiveness plans.
