Accreditation Readiness Assessment (pages 26-27)

 


Step 3 in the application process is to complete the Accreditation Readiness Assessment (formerly the Level 1 Questionnaire) online. This assessment helps you evaluate your experience and skill level to determine if you are adequately prepared to begin the accreditation process. If you are lacking experience or skills in any of the areas on the assessment, please take time to gain more experience before beginning the accreditation process.
