What is Accreditation?
The formal evaluation of an organization or program against best practice standards. It is both a status and a process.
As a Status
It signifies that an organization or program meets standards of quality set forth by the accrediting body.
As a Process
It involves an in-depth self-review of an organization or program against currently accepted best practice standards, an onsite visit by an evaluation team comprised of experts, and a subsequent review and decision by the accrediting body.
