The initial accreditation of your association’s certification program is valid for a period of five years (assuming no substantial changes to the program during that time period).
At the end of the accreditation period, in order to renew the accreditation, we will follow a process similar to that of the initial application and evaluation process. Your association will be asked again to complete a comprehensive application document. ICAC will once again assign an evaluation team to your certification program and will once again conduct a comprehensive on-site evaluation.
For renewal, there is no application fee required. The evaluation fee is set at $2,000 (plus travel expenses). This fee assumes only one site inspector is required for the renewal visit and that the site is located within the continental US. Unusual situations may again require a modified fee be negotiated.
