|From the Desk of the Director of Accreditation
The SSH Accreditation Council is exited to announce the launching of new SSH Accreditation Online Courses. Developing your organization’s application for accreditation can be a daunting task. By enrolling in one of SSH's Accreditation Online Courses you will be equipped to develop a plan to address your organization’s areas of strengths and weaknesses. Experienced SSH accreditation site reviewers lead each course and the weekly group conference calls. Through interactive course learning activities, you will receive constructive feedback from other healthcare simulation educators regarding your organization’s processes, policies, and much more. Attendees are encouraged to have a working knowledge of simulation education with at least 12 months of experience working in the field of simulation.
The online courses cover the five different accreditation standards (Core, Teaching/Education, Assessment, Research and Systems Integration). Registrants can sign up for all, or any, of the courses that are applicable to their program. Don’t wait! There are only ten spots per course!! Join us and:
There are five areas for accreditation. All must apply for Core, the remaining areas are optional (must apply for at least one of Assessment, Research, or Teaching/Education).
- Learn the components of the accreditation process. This interactive course will help you understand the requirements for accreditation, the application process, and available resources.
- Identify your program’s strengths and weaknesses. Each course will breakdown the corresponding standards and criteria with examples of past successful accredited programs.
- Examine where most programs struggle to achieve accreditation. Each module contains active course activities to assist programs in the most challenging parts of the application process.

NOTE: Taking the Accreditation Online Courses does not guarantee your organization will obtain accreditation. Course instructors are not permitted to provide feedback on your organization’s application. The Accreditation Review Board has the final power to accredit each organization. more
