As part of the programme accreditation process, the Council reviews the proposed curriculum for the training of allied health professionals.

Among other things, a team from the Council will visit the training institution to ensure that the facilities earmarked for practical training and attachment are of the required standard.

The accreditation visitation team must be convinced that the proposed physical facility is conducive for teaching and learning. It must also be satisfied that all recommended books, journals among others are available and in the right quantity taking into consideration the projected students’ enrolment.

The team must be convinced that the faculty for the said programme is duly qualified.

The Council will not accredit a programme if it believes the above-mentioned standards have not been met.

It is important to state that the Council currently does not accredit certificate programmes.
