Achievement of Creating Excellence Together (CET) Accreditation Level 2 shows that a service provider
CET Accreditation Level 2 incorporates all of the Level 1 standards and indicators, and also includes additional indicators that, while not mandatory for funding or for providing quality of life for individuals accessing service, measures the extra procedures a service provider facilitates to strive for
To be considered for Accreditation Level 2, it is expected that all Accreditation Level 1 indicators will be met at the 90% level (as per the Accreditation Level 1 Measurement System). Once there is verification that Accreditation Level 1 has been met, the site-survey report is forwarded to ACDS' Commission on Accreditation for review.
The Quality of Life, Quality of Service, and Organizational Framework standards continue to be given equal consideration in the standards review. As well, written policy and procedure, and consistent and well-understood practice will be in place at all levels of the organization and among its stakeholders.
The Accreditation Level 1 portion of the survey is funded by Persons with Developmental Disabilities; organizations are billed for the Accreditation Level 2 part. Seeking to achieve Accreditation Level 2 in organizational and service excellence is a major undertaking and reflects an organization's drive to be the best that it can be.
