CAJPA sponsors what is considered the nation’s first risk management accreditation program. This Accreditation Program is designed to ensure quality and professional standards for all risk management pools regardless of size, scope of operation, or membership structure. The process involves a detailed program study and evaluation, committee review and issuance of a report.

CAJPA offers two options for California pools that are interested in accreditation:

  • Pre-Accreditation Review: This allows potential accreditation applicants to submit to a preliminary review by the accreditation consultant. Any deficiencies and corrective actions are noted to bring the potential applicant up to accreditation standard.
  • Accreditation: This process entails a detailed examination of the pool’s legal and operations documents, risk management, loss control and claims program, and statutory compliance.

For more information on the Accreditation Program, please contact the CAJPA Office at (916) 231-2139.
