PROFESSIONAL FAQS - General Questions
No, there is nothing that needs to be submitted to the CAATE to notify a change in CEC. You will need to make the changes in eAccreditation in relation to officials as well as faculty profiles. Additionally, Standards 16 and 17 (2012 Professional Standards) may need to be adjusted with regard to FTE and PD/CEC course load, if that changes with this transition.
PROFESSIONAL FAQS - 2012 Professional Program Standards
Standard 17 (2012 Professional Program Standards): Is it acceptable for a Program Director to have an overload as long as the PD is paid for the overload?
The intent of this Standard (2012 Professional Program Standards) is to ensure that program directors are given adequate time and resources to fulfill the requirements of their position and the needs of the program. The PD’s overall load must be comparable to similarly held health care positions at the institution or benchmarked by peer institutions. It is up to the institution to describe a case where this practice is consistent with other health care programs at the institution or peer institutions. If the program cannot verify this practice is consistent with the required benchmarking criterion, the practice would be non-compliant.
