Peer Evaluator Training Course Content

Peer evaluators who are chosen to serve on review teams are enrolled first in an online course called Accreditation 101 for the basics and also in an online course that corresponds to the type of review. In addition, they are asked to come to a face-to-face training in which they are asked to apply their learning in practice scenarios. Below are links to the content of the previous online courses as PDF documents.
