Prevocational Accreditation Committee (PAC)

Purpose

The Prevocational Accreditation Committee (PAC) oversees the HETI accreditation program. The PAC makes decisions about accreditation of Providers, accreditation of terms and the conditions placed on a Provider’s accreditation.

The PAC can award a Provider accreditation for a minimum period of six months up to a maximum period of four years. When there are specific issues that require attention, the PAC may award accreditation dependent on the Provider addressing conditions within a given period of time. The PAC may also decide that a Focus Visit is required to ensure conditions have been addressed.

The PAC also reviews the Providers’ Annual Reports on accreditation. The Annual Reports are due on the anniversary of a Providers accreditation (excluding years when they are scheduled for an accreditation survey). If the PAC considers it necessary to conduct an investigation into what is reported,  the General Manager of the Provider will be notified and investigations will be conducted as requested by the PAC. Annual Reports are also reviewed by the Prevocational Training Council.

Meeting Frequency

The PAC meets on the third Thursday of every month. Meeting dates and submission closing dates are available for 2021 and 2022.
