Most Organizations agree that the most helpful step in the application process is completing your self-assessment, before you begin writing your application. The guide to conducting your self-assessment is the Evaluation Instrument for Accreditation. It takes you through each of the accreditation standards and the Elements that support them and shows you how to provide the information needed to meet the Standards.

When you become a client of AAHRPP, by pre-paying your application fee, our accreditation directors will work with you as you go through the evalution instrument, so that you can conduct a self-assessment that shows you what you need to do to be awarded accreditation.
