If different departments or offices have separate training and development policies, you should apply for the individual department or office to be accredited as an ACAPP accredited employer. If the training and development policies cover everyone in the organisation, then you can apply for the whole organisation to be accredited.

  • Length of accreditation

    Employer accreditation lasts for three years, after which you can apply to become reaccredited. We will notify you when your accreditation is due for renewal.

  • Monitoring

    We conduct randomly selected monitoring and support visits to ensure accredited employers are meeting our standards. If you are selected for monitoring we will ask to see a copy of your training policy documents.
