Workshops

The July and October Virtual AFE workshops are full. Additional workshop dates coming soon!

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 workshop will run from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. MT each day.

The Virtual AFE includes hands-on experiences, interactive presentations, networking with your fellow educators and 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.
