Are you ready to earn your accreditation? During this five-hour comprehensive session, you'll learn what it takes to achieve accreditation and the variety of resources available to you. The entire process will be reviewed, including how to prepare, what resources you need, and how to ace the Portfolio Presentation and the computer-based exam.
