Pre-Application Orientation Webinar

What is the P-AOW?

Participation in a P-AOW is required for all schools and programs planning to pursue an initial application submission (IAS). More information can be found in CEPH's procedures document.

The P-AOW focuses on key components and requirements of CEPH accreditation, including information on preparing a successful IAS. The P-AOW requires three steps:

  1. Watch the CEPH Overview
  2. Watch the P-AOW Part A recording
  3. Participate in the P-AOW Part B live webinar*

*The P-AOW Part B is a live webinar offered quarterly. All registrants must watch the CEPH Overview and P-AOW Part A in order to attend the live portion of the P-AOW.
