Needed: “Raters” for ICAPGen℠ Applications and Renewals

Many hands make light work!many hands

You made it through the accreditation process—congratulations! Go ahead and rest on your laurels—you earned it!

Now you have an opportunity to be a part of the process for others, by volunteering to be a “rater” for new applications and renewals.  We need your experience and expertise to help ICAPGen run smoothly.  Please consider making yourself available for at least one turn at rating this coming year—one turn by many people would make a big difference!

We need raters for every testing region.  You will be given a rating form and very clear and objective guidelines to follow as you rate applications and renewals.  Try it and you will see it is not scary. We promise!
