    Advanced Accreditation

    Atlanta, GA

    August 6, 2024

     

    This 8-hour workshop is designed to enhance the skills and practices developed by currently accredited agencies and their accreditation teams during the application and management of the current CFAI fire and emergency services self-assessment model.

     

    Course Sessions:

    • Managing the continued application of the agency’s community risk assessment and standard of cover methodologies.
    • Managing the agency’s accreditation report recommendations and report progress using the annual compliance report (ACR) process.
    • Implementing a consistent and beneficial annual program appraisal process.
    • Developing and implementing useful performance outcomes.
    • Accreditation team succession planning.

     

    Participants will leave the course with new knowledge and tools they can immediately apply within their organizations. As this is an Advanced Accreditation Course, it will take what processes worked when the agency got accredited and advance those processes to ensure the agency remains accredited and grows in the application of the model.
