Course Accreditation Criteria

The Course Accreditation Criteria outlines the IACP requirements for Course Accreditation.

The Course Accreditation Criteria document is a comprehensive of the standards expected within each area of course design and delivery. 

The criteria covers the following areas; Student Selection and Admission, Course Staff, Course Rationale, Philosophy and Design, Work on Self, Work with Clients, Supervision, Theory, Skills Training, Methods, Professional Issues and Assessment. 

All of the requirements documented must be adhered to in order to achieve IACP Accreditation. 

Please Note

Responsibility / liability

The course is responsible for ensuring that it understands, meets and continues to meet all requirements for course accredited status. Where IACP suspends or withdraws accredited status from a course, it is a matter between the Course Provider and its students. IACP has no liability to students on a course where it suspends or withdraws its accredited status. The Course Provider of the course will be responsible to the students for any detriment caused to them as a result of the course losing its accreditation.
