Course Accreditation Frequently Asked Questions

Course Accreditation

How much does it cost to get my course accredited by the AKA?

Course accreditation is free. We value educational contributions to our industry and we invite you to submit your course for accreditation.

How long does it take for my course to be accredited?

Times can vary depending on how much information we need to request from you. The Course Accreditation Board aims to meet once per month.

Do I need to resubmit my course at any time?

Courses need to be resubmitted for reevaluation on a five-year cyclical basis. If there are no changes or up to 10% change a Statutory Declaration can be submitted. If there is more than a 10% change, a new application is required using the current application criteria requirements at that time.

What if my course changes?

It is the responsibility of the course author to keep the AKACAB informed of any changes to the original course application. Such as: Additions to course materials; Alterations of the course that substantially change the nature of the material taught. These changes need to be assessed and approved by the AKACAB for the course to remain accredited; The way in which it is taught; Change in hours taken to teach the course; Updated lists of Instructors and Examiners. This information is passed onto the PRB as only students taught by registered instructors will have their hours recognised.

Can I submit a course in a language other than English?

Applications will not be considered unless they are submitted in English.

Will my course content remain confidential?

All materials and manuals become the property of the AKA for the purposes of reference and review and will remain strictly confidential and will be stored in a secure locked storage system.

Do I have to use the templates provided by the AKACAB?

Yes, if a template is supplied, you must use the template for your submission.
