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.
