Annual Standards Updates

Please note - as of 2021, CPRB began making small annual updates to the Accreditation Standards in July or August of each year. Updated documents are posted on the CPRB website once finalized.

All programs undergoing an accreditation survey will be evaluated against the most recent version of the Standards, plus any updates issued. Programs will have one year to become compliant with updates, meaning that, for example, sites surveyed in the Fall of 2023 will be evaluated against the August 2022 updates to the 2018 (Year 1) or 2016 (Year 2) Standards. 

If you have any questions, please contact the CPRB Coordinator.
