The FESRT promotes excellence and innovation in education through its accreditation standards and procedures for doctoral and internship programmers in professional.
Whereas individual practitioners are licensed, training programmes in professional can be accredited. The FESRT accredits such training programmes
Accreditation is a voluntary process but allows students ,graduates doctoral and internship programmes to demonstrate that they have met a community standard of training.
Although graduation from an accredited doctoral programme is not a requirement for registration as a FESRT member or always a requirement of employers, it can be an advantage.
Applicants for registration or licensure who have graduated from accredited programmes often receive ‘fast-track’ credential reviews by regulatory bodies. Furthermore, accredited programmes are encouraged to hire faculty and staff who themselves have graduated from either a FESRT accredited programme.
