Self-Study Workshop, 2015 Standards
Continuing Accreditation Workshop
Saturday, September 14, 2019

8:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Self-Study Workshop is an in-depth educational seminar designed to help organizations prepare for the comprehensive site-survey.  It is designed for Program Directors or other institutional representatives who have an upcoming site visit in approximately 12 or more months.  The workshop will focus on the MAERB resources to to help you prepare for the Self-Study, walk you through the Self-Study template, discuss how to best ensure if you are effectively implementing the MAERB Core Curriculum, and provide an overview of how to prepare for the site visit.  This program is led by experienced surveyors, who are able to share their expertise in and knowledge of the Standards and the survey process.  

Preference will be given to people who have site visits in 2020 and 2021.  If you have attended the workshop previously, it is important to know that the substance has not changed.  If the Workshop is not full by June 1, 2019, we will then open it up to others.  If a program wants to send two people, the second person will be put on a waiting list and informed if there is space available.
