Accreditation guidance

Earning approval from a national or international accreditation body is a challenging process. If you’re seeking accreditation for licensure, certification or assessment-based certificate programs, ProExam can provide expert guidance through:

  • Readiness Studies. ProExam objectively evaluates programs and examinations for adherence to generally accepted credentialing standards. Both a psychometric analysis and analysis of program components can be used to identify where there are variations and to recommend appropriate changes. We also check programs against criteria from a number of standards or standards bodies, including the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, the American National Standards Institute, the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing and the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification.
  • Application Forensics. We critically evaluate accreditation applications, identifying and documenting weaknesses and mapping out a plan for aligning your program with the standards.
  • Application Support. We provide application strategy guidance as well as advice on meeting standards and documentation. This support is available for credentialing program sponsors whether or not the program itself is a ProExam client.
