When there is a provincial regulatory body for the profession, the regulatory body has an agreement with CMA Conjoint Accreditation Services and the regulatory body has a set of additional requirements which educational programs must address, the program must provide a document that cross-references these additional requirements.
New criterion 5.4
Criterion 5.4 now explicitly requires programs to demonstrate that they evaluate the outcome of actions taken and initiate corrective measures when interventions do not result in program improvement.
Programs will require time to implement appropriate processes that enable them to provide the evidence required to meet this criterion. Accredited programs visited between January 2015 and December 2018 will need to demonstrate they have plans, processes and measures in place or underway to meet this criterion. Outcomes available, even limited, should be presented to the survey team for assessment.
As of January 2019, all accredited programs will have to meet program outcomes outlined in criterion 5.4.
