Program accreditation is an external content-review process of training programs against a specific set of standards, whereas Institutional Accreditation is an external review process for overall institutional quality.
Megram has been actively involved in professional program accreditation for over a decade through its management of the Association of Accrediting Agencies of Canada (AAAC).
We helped establish the Canadian Association of Audiology and Speech Language Pathology in 2005 and we manage their accreditation program which currently involves 11 Canadian faculties.
We helped develop the accreditation program for ECO Canada in 2009 and we were asked to take over that program in 2013. Since then we have implemented new processes and procedures and expanded the number of accredited programs from six to 25 environmental programs.
Certification recognizes competence and promotes continuous learning following certification. The process of obtaining designation is rigorous, demanding, and introspective. Designations are required by many professions that are not subject to licensure as a competence indicator.
Megram manages the professional designation program for the Canadian Evaluation Society through an automated process which is part of the custom-build membership management system that we developed for the Society.
Megram manages the professional designation program for the Vocational Rehabilitation Association of Canada including database maintenance of continuing Education Credits earned by members to maintain their professional designation.
