Registration For 2023 Virtual 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 virtual AFE includes hands-on experiences, interactive presentations, and networking with your fellow educators, with frequent breaks to avoid Zoom fatigue. 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, and required for program directors to attend within the 12-month period prior to a scheduled site evaluation, per the ARC/STSA AFE Workshop Policy.

Attendees must participate both days to receive credit. Workshop is held 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Mountain Time on each day.
