CEA strives to make the accreditation process a positive experience for everyone involved.  The process for CEA accreditation is:

  1. Written notice to CEA on intent to become CEA Accredited.

  2. Contracts are sent to the institution

  3. Initial payment to CEA

  4. Training for staff involved with accreditation provided by CEA

  5. CEA Standards Audit

  6. Final determination by the Standards Commission

  7. Final payment to CEA

  8. Accreditation period runs for three years

  9. Recognition at the CEA International Conference

This entire process runs from 6 months to 1 year.  Institutions call for the Standards Audit when they are comfortable that their documentation is ready.  CEA provides ongoing technical assistance.  The fees associated with accreditation cover the costs for the travel of the trainers and auditors.
