From the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) website:
“A program is determined as accredited with conditions when:
- it meets most of the Accreditation Standards, and those not met at the time of assessment are likely to be met within the time specified by APAC. A determination of accreditation with conditions will be accompanied by a list of conditions to be addressed and a date by which those conditions must be addressed.
- if a higher education provider (HEP) makes changes to its program and/or its supporting resources after the accreditation process such that the program no longer meets the Standards, and the Standards not met at the time of assessment are likely to be met within the time specified by APAC.”
Re-accreditation for most programs and providers occurs on a 5-year cycle. Reports from Cairnmillar’s 2021 re-accreditation can be found on the APAC website here.
