1 Pages: Page 1 of 7 Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET) STANDARDS FOR ACCREDITATION These standards for accreditation of continuing education and training institutions and organizations have been approved by the membership of ACCET. The ACCET standards are interpreted and, thereby, operationalized through policies and procedures adopted by the Accrediting Commission under the Bylaws and, as such, are to be referenced in conjunction with these standards in the evaluating the accreditability of institutions/organizations. ACCET standards serve a number of functions, including: the representation of good practice against which continuing education and training institutions and programs can be evaluated and improved; the guidance to evaluation teams in conducting on-site reviews; the basis upon which the Accrediting Commission reviews relevant reports and documentation for an institution/organization s accreditation status and to promulgate such policies and procedures as they determine necessary for a more focused interpretation; and to enable governmental agencies, employers, participants, and the general public to know the criteria by which an accredited institution or program has been evaluated. STANDARD I MISSION The institution has a mission that is compatible with the ACCET mission, scope, and standards. A. Mission: The institution clearly states its mission and makes it public.
