Change in Recertification Credits
Due to accreditation-related policies and procedures, ACAC will be reducing the number of recertification credits granted for continued activity in the field. Currently, ACAC grants 20 credits for continued activity in the field, out of the 40 required for recertification. Beginning January 1, 2018, we will reduce this number to 10. ACAC certificants will then need to earn at least 30 credits every two years from professional development activities to meet the 40 credit requirement.
But worry not, ACAC has just made getting recertification credits (RCs) easier and less expensive. You now have another way to continue your professional development. Check out this month’s video regarding ACAC.LIVE on the ACAC homepage.
We were recently asked how many recertifying certificants were audited. Approximately 50% are selected by a randomizing program and asked to provide documentation of their professional development (aka continuing education).
Those subscribed to the new ACAC.LIVE program have an easy, inexpensive route to recertification credits (RCs). The ACAC.LIVE program maintains the required documentation as the certificant uses it.
Changes in the CMRS Program
Beginning January 1, 2018, field experience required for candidates applying for the Council-certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor (CMRS) program increases from five (5) to eight (8) years.
Openings for Board Members
ACAC currently has a few openings for certification board members. Eligibility requirements include holding the highest designation in a certification track. As an example, infection control board members for the assessment track must hold the CEICC designation. Infection control board members for the remediation track must hold the CEICS designation. Please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
ACAC is now BETA-testing a new subscription program that allows one to store documents and specify an action reminder date. Subscribers will be able to upload a document – such as a driver’s license, a certification, a city permit and other time-limited documents – and set a date to be reminded that an action (think renewals, etc.) is needed. No longer do you need to worry about an expiration date – the program eliminates those worries for you (and your employees).
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
