The Council on Occupational Education is a postsecondary accreditor of institutions that offer career and technical education. The Council is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a national institutional accrediting agency for the accreditation of non-degree-granting and applied associate degree-granting postsecondary occupational education institutions.

In an effort to encourage input from potential employers, this survey has been designed for members of occupational advisory committees to rate the adequacy and relevancy of the objectives of the standards for accreditation of career and technical education institutions. The evaluations of standards by the occupational advisory committee will be submitted prior to hosting an accreditation visiting team.

After reviewing the objectives for each standard, please rank the standard as a whole with a rating of 1 through 5, with 1 being the least adequate or relevant. Text boxes are available after each question so that readers may provide the Council with comments and suggestions. The results of this survey are reviewed annually by the Council’s Committees on Accreditation Standards and Conditions.

Please print the last page of this survey as confirmation that this survey has been completed by a member of the Occupational Advisory Committee.
