CEA Accreditation Workshop Preparation
Welcome to the online introduction for your CEA accreditation workshop. The introduction is broken into a series of units, each with a video slideshow and a worksheet. Be sure to download the worksheet for each unit before you watch the video so that you can gain the most from the unit. You can download the worksheets from the first six units as one file, if you prefer. It is possible to download the videos for offline viewing rather than watching them online. Instructions are at the bottom of this page.
You will want to have the Accreditation Handbook and a copy of the CEA Standards handy as you watch the videos. These two documents were emailed to you. For Unit 2, you will need to reference your eligibility correspondence, which you received via email. In addition, there are references to the CEA Policies and Procedures, as well as the Mission and Values statements, both available on the CEA website under About CEA.
Unit 1: Mission
Unit 2: Scope of Accreditation
Unit 3: CEA Values
Unit 4: Specialized Accreditation
Unit 5: Accreditation Process
Unit 6: CEA Standards

NOTE: If you decide to download the online units for offline viewing, please note that the files range from 15 MB to 50 MB in size. To download the videos, click on the link for the Slides/Video, then scroll down and click on the "Clip Info/Download" button below the video. A little menu will appear, and in some cases, you will see links for several different versions of the video. Right-click on the version you want to download, and then choose "Save as" or "Save Link as" or "Download linked file," depending on the options your browser and operating system give you.
