Page Title: Standards and Accreditation

ACA consultant auditors are experienced correctional professionals who are approved by the Director of Standards and Accreditation. The average auditor has worked in corrections for more than 18 years with experience supervising and evaluating the type of programs being reviewed for accreditation. Auditors are also utilized for field consultation, re-audits and monitoring visits to accredited or certified programs.

To be considered for approval as an ACA auditor, you must:

  • Complete the auditor orientation course and test with a passing score of 75% or higher;
  • Submit a resume showing five years experience in corrections, three at the supervisory level;
  • Be a current member of ACA;
  • Submit a letter of recommendation from the Director/CEO of your agency.

**** Successful completion of the orientation course is required prior to submission of a resume and recommendation. Passing the orientation course DOES NOT certify an individual as an ACA auditor, but is a crucial step in the process. An individual becomes a certified ACA auditor once he or she has been approved by the Director, Standards and Accreditation.

Please submit a copy of your auditor orientation certificate along with a current resume and letter of recommendation from the Director/CEO of your agency to the below address:
