CEC Accreditation

Application for Accreditation Eligibility Now Open!

After a public review period and incorporation of feedback on the draft CEC Accreditation Policy and Procedures, Eligibility Application, and Program Report templates, CEC is proud to officially open its Application for Accreditation Eligibility. Programs who are seeking to become CEC Accredited will start by applying for Accreditation Eligibility whose purpose is to collect information on programs to ensure that they fall under the scope of CEC Accreditation and have the ability and resources to gather the evidence and requirements to successfully achieve CEC Accreditation. 

The current fees for programs are listed below. Programs completing an application will be invoiced upon submission. Applications will be reviewed when payment is received by CEC.
