An Institute seeking accreditation of their Program is required to submit an application for a Program survey to the CAD office. The deadline for application for an accreditation review is twelve (12) months in advance of the intended survey.

The Accreditation Requirements necessitate that the Institution presenting a Program for accreditation prepare a self- evaluation of the Program’s educational activities. The Guide to Accreditation and Accreditation Document Requirements are maintained by the CAD, it is recommended that the Institutions thoroughly review both of these documents. 

It is recommended that Institutions review the Accreditation Document Requirements prior to applying for accreditation to assist with preparation for a site visit by the CAD representatives.

Institutions must complete responses or pre-survey documentation to the Accreditation Document Requirements in a clear and concise manner and address each Accreditation Requirement with appropriate information and using the related number that appears in the document. After each required response, there is a section for “Submitted Evidence Required”. This evidence may be inserted as direct response or as a referenced appendix which should be clearly labelled and must identify all responses and references.
