Workshops

Registration Is Open For Upcoming 2022 Live AFE Workshops!

We get it – accreditation can be stressful. But take heart, the ARC/STSA and EdAccred are here to demystify the process and support new and seasoned educators. Join ARC/STSA board members and staff, who will guide you through CAAHEP Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting Standards & Guidelines, and ARC/STSA policies.

The AFE includes hands-on experiences, interactive presentations, networking with your fellow educators breakfast and lunch. We’ll prepare your team for Virtual and On-Site Evaluations, review how to effectively respond to Findings Letters, and detail how to maintain accreditation.

This workshop will benefit new and seasoned program directors, clinical coordinators, instructors, as well as deans and compliance professionals. It is required for all program directors within one year of appointment.
