ASE Extends Deadlines For Accredited Programs

ASE Extends Deadlines For Accredited Programs

Programs with accreditation-renewal deadlines from March 1 to Dec. 1 will have six months added to their expiration dates.

With many programs unable to complete their renewal applications and compliance reviews, ASE has extended its deadlines for accredited programs.

Programs with accreditation-renewal deadlines from March 1 to Dec. 1 will have six months added to their expiration dates. Programs with compliance reviews due from March 1 to Dec. 1 also will have six months added to their due date.

“The health and safety of students, school staff, evaluation teams and industry partners is our first concern during this unprecedented time,” said Mike Coley, president of the ASE Education Foundation. “While virtual instruction may be taking place this spring in some places, many programs are unable to provide hands-on lab instruction. Other activities, such as advisory committee meetings, are being delayed or cancelled. Therefore, we felt it was only appropriate to extend expiration and due dates.”

ASE also is allowing any applications or compliance reviews that were submitted prior to March 1 but were not yet completed due to no on-site evaluation, program improvement needed, pending instructor ASE certifications and other factors to remain active through Dec. 31.

“The staff and board of directors of the ASE Education Foundation appreciate the hard work of administrators, instructors, advisory committee members and evaluation teams who continue the important mission of educating the next generation of service technicians for our industry, especially in these challenging times,” said Coley. “We want everyone to stay safe and well, follow the guidance of the CDC and health authorities, and know that we are here to support you as you continue that mission.”
