If you have been on multiple consultation sites and everybody seems to offer something different, here are a few things to consider prior to committing your resources to an accreditation consultant:

  • Updated Resources
    There should be evidence the provider is consistently updating their resources, based on ongoing direct experience with organizations.
  • Comprehensive Resources
    The resources consultants offer should be comprehensive, in terms of addressing specific CARF processes and individual stems of standards.
  • Products, Experience, and Reputation
    Their products, experience, and reputation should be the central focus of consideration, not promises that if you buy their stuff you will get a three-year accreditation.
