Site Visits, Inspections, Evaluations and Expectations

EdVentures Consulting will prepare you for what the State of California and private accreditation agencies expect, as well as what you should expect from them.  It will assist you in other states (Clients in over 15 states to-date).  My experience and expertise will help you prepare for the type of site visit which both California and private accreditors periodically conduct.  These onsite inspections, evaluations and assessments determine your compliance with various requirements and the quality of educational services provided. These visits are critical for your institution, and can result in either continued or renewed approval or accreditation...or result in conditional approvals or even denial of your ability to operate.  Start with a free consultation (often by e-mail or phone) that acquaints you with the services provided and aligns your expectations with the realities of approval and accreditation processes.  These services are both affordable and incredibly advantageous for your institution.

Know What You Need Before You Need It

State of California laws and regulations governing the private postsecondary degree and non-degree granting business/education sectors can be exasperating and confusing even for seasoned institutions let alone initial and potential applicants.  State of California requirements are among the most rigorous and complicated in the United States.  Professional consultation services based on hard-earned knowledge, expertise and direct experience will save you considerable time and money.  This is critically important for your success. 

Do not be concerned that my expertise and experience only pertains to the State of California.  I have had clients in over 15 states to-date, adding two or three states per year on average.

Do you really want to go it alone?  Let EdVentures Consulting be your partner.
