The Council on Occupational Education's November Candidate Academy Part 1 - Seeking Candidacy will be held November 8-10, 2017 at the Rio All-Suites Resort & Spa, 3700 West Flamingo Road, in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

The Candidate Academy Part 1 - Seeking Candidacy is for representatives from institutions seeking to become a candidate for accreditation (pre-accreditation) with COE.  The Academy is a series of workshops designed to inform institutions of the accreditation process and covers such topics as accreditation eligibility, applying for candidacy and preparing for the candidate visit. 

Schools already in Candidate status with COE should not attend the Candidate Academy Part 1.

A full-time employee of the institution must attend the Candidate Academy Part 1 before the institution can submit the candidate application.  Eligible institutions must submit an application for candidacy to the Council within 12 months of attending the Candidate Academy Part 1. 

The Candidate Academy Part 1 is limited to 2 representatives per institution.  Attendees must attend all Academy sessions in order to receive a certificate of completion.

Within one year of the date that candidate status is awarded by the Commission, a representative of the school must attend the Candidate Academy Part 2 - Accreditation Prep.  The second Academy prepares the institution for writing the Self-Study Report and for hosting its accreditation visit.
