The CAATE has compiled frequently asked questions for students, professionals and post-professionals. Find answers to your questions below.
PROFESSIONAL FAQS - Student Directory
How is it determined which cohort a student is in? Is it when they started the program, when they finally complete the program or when they take the test?
The cohorts are “admission cohorts;” when the student is actually admitted to the program. Each cohort will have an on-time graduation. IF a student needs extended time and will not graduate until the next year, they remain with the original cohort and you (as Program Director) will have the ability to manually put in the actual graduation date.
PROFESSIONAL FAQS - Annual Report
Can we update our preceptor training date to reflect the most recent date (even though it occurs after the reporting period)?
The directory information (clinical site, faculty, and preceptor profiles) are dynamic and can be updated at all times. Programs are encouraged to put in the most recent training date. The reviewers will not be concerned with the training date occurring within the reporting year.
VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL FAQS
How long can a program be in the withdrawal phase without having to do a selfstudy if they are scheduled for one?
A program who has submitted their voluntary withdrawal documentation to the CAATE and has been notified that the withdrawal date and documentation is satisfactory will not have to do a selfstudy. However, programs going through Voluntary Withdrawal are expected to remain in compliance with the Standards and must continue to submit Annual Reports, submit any Progress Reports, and pay annual accreditation fees until the approved date of withdrawal.
