Program accreditation is specific to a program. When a training organization applies for program accreditation, all the policies/directives and evidence will demonstrate that a specific program meets the standards. The training organization must submit a separate application for each program seeking accreditation.
Program accreditation is not transferable. If a program is deleted, or the whole or parts of a program are transferred into another program, the new program must be reviewed following the FLETA process.
Academy accreditation is an organizational-level recognition that an academy administers, develops, and delivers all training programs under the academy’s purview according to the FLETA standards. To be eligible to apply for academy accreditation, a training organization must achieve accreditation for all entry-level/basic programs and either use a FLETA-accredited instructor development program or achieve accreditation for its initial/introductory instructor development program.
