Accreditation applications are submitted through the online portal. We recommend that you apply at least eight weeks before the activity date; this will ensure you have sufficient time to revise your activity if required for accreditation.
Your submission will include the online application form and all the required attachments. Please have all documents ready, as you will not be permitted to edit your application once it has been sent. The program advisor will review your application and contact you within three business days. Should you decide not to proceed with the accreditation process, an administration fee of $350 + taxes will be charged.
If you are in the process of developing an activity and you are interested in seeking CNA accreditation, we suggest you leave yourself sufficient time to familiarize yourself with the accreditation process and the relevant guidelines and standards.
To help ensure your application proceeds smoothly, we have created the following worksheets that allow you to prepare the required information before you begin your formal online application.
When you are ready to submit your application, you will be cutting and pasting the information from the worksheet into the matching section of the online application.
