Accreditation is the most widely used improvement process in the world. It is distinctly different from other improvement processes—accreditation is a standards-based, ongoing improvement process that includes expert, third-party professional review, and feedback.

This face-to-face training details the steps in the improvement journey for institutions preparing for a Cognia Accreditation Engagement Review. Learn how to document and report findings to gain or maintain the value and recognition of being an accredited institution.

Participants will be able to:

  • Discover the new Cognia Performance Standards
  • Explore the phases of the accreditation process
  • Prepare for the Accreditation Engagement Review
  • Determine an action plan to implement continuous improvement strategies

Participation in this training will meet the requirement for all Cognia institutions to participate in a Preparing For The Engagement Review session.  Registration for virtual training options is available to all members, at no cost, by visiting  Events – Cognia.

Registration for this training is $250 per person.  This face-to-face training includes individual team support, all materials and light refreshments. School/District improvement team participation is encouraged.
