The Accreditation Department holds two types of workshops twice a year, Developing Program Workshops and Self-study Workshops.
Both workshops are hosted to provide support, information, and guidance on obtaining and maintaining accreditation.

Developing Programs Workshop

The workshop informs institutional representatives about CAPTE's process, the requirements for developing a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant education program, and minimum expectations for achieving Candidate for Accreditation status. The focus of the workshop will be on CAPTE's Rules of Practice and Procedure, an in-depth review of CAPTE’s Standards and Required Elements, and guidelines for developing an Application for Candidacy document. The Program Director and at least one appropriate representative of the institution must attend the live Developing Program Workshop prior to submission of the Application for Candidacy.
