ACCREDITATION PROCESS

Our Accreditation Process is designed to assist programs working towards excellence in service delivery by focusing on the structure, internal processes, outcome measurements, quality assurance and implementation of best practices. We help to provide strong foundations to build upon and provide organizations with both professional and public recognition of their achievements.

 
 

TRAINING CENTER

We believe training is a crucial part of the accreditation process.

We offer a variety of workshops, accreditation seminars for organizations to introduce those in the process to our Standards and method, and training for our Volunteer Positions, Reviewers and Team Leads. Please continue to check back to learn about new and exciting workshops we will be offering to participants.
