Certification Authority Actions:
The Certification Authority will check to ensure that all required legal agreements are fully executed, fees have been paid, and all submitted documents are acceptable. The Certification Authority will check that the course name is acceptable. The Certification Authority will then have an assessor perform an assessment of your Accreditation Package. The assessor may contact you with questions during the assessment. The Certification Authority will inform you of the outcome of the accreditation process.
Once your training course is accredited, it will be added to the Accredited Course Register. You will then be able to train students to prepare them for the program examination and certification.
