Commissioner Visit II

The commission visitor’s primary task is to discuss the Benchmark II document and identify areas of compliance and concern in the first part of the Benchmark II document. The visitor will also ask the program whether there have been any changes since the last visit and determine whether any of those changes affect the program’s compliance. 

The visitor also reviews the draft standards in the second part of the Benchmark II document and identifies areas of further development that the program can use in writing the compliance section of Initial Accreditation/Benchmark III.
