Accreditation

There is no type of government mandates or laws requiring "accreditation" for any professional organization that offers "Certifications" or "Continuing Professional Education. Certifications are most always developed and offered by "professional organizations" rather than schools of higher education. Accreditations are voluntary processes and are more important in higher education systems, such as colleges and universities. Accreditations are specifically important for colleges/universities to qualify for financial aid and funds, including government student loan programs. Federal Law does not require qualified Healthcare Professionals that meet certain professional standards to attend lengthy traditional programs in order to obtain certification. The participants must be qualified health care professionals based on criteria set forth by the certification agency.
