PATH Intl. Center Accreditation
IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION FOR 2017: The online Center and Accreditation Training (CAT) Course exam will be phased out during the 2017 calendar year. As of February 1, 2017, all new certification and accreditation/reaccreditation applicants will be enrolled in the new, in-depth online PATH Intl. Standards Course exam in place of the CAT Course exam.
Accreditation is a voluntary process that recognizes PATH Intl. Centers that have met established industry standards. The accreditation process is a peer review system in which trained volunteers visit and review centers in accordance with PATH Intl. standards. A center that meets the accreditation requirements based on the administrative, facility, program and applicable special interest standards becomes a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center for a period of five years.
