Learn the Process
The process of accreditation can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re here to support you each step of the way. Explore below the six key steps in the accreditation process.
Accreditation and certification are important accomplishments to achieve and we are here to help your organization throughout the entire process. Whether you’re new to the Joint Commission and just starting on your journey, or you are looking for guidance after your survey or review, you’ll have plenty of ongoing support.
If you’re pursuing accreditation for the first time, a member of our Business Development team will help you determine if your organization is eligible, explain the process, provide you with access to the accreditation standards and inform you about other helpful resources available to you. Once your application and deposit* has been submitted, an Account Executive will then become your primary, ongoing “go to” person to help you through the process before, during and after the survey.
