Update of Accreditation Standards

CAJPA Members,

Upon the request of the CAJPA Board of Directors, the Accreditation Committee took a deep look into the standards. The attached standards and the accompanying accreditation worksheets that the consultants use and that help us better interpret the standards are also enclosed.

Overview:

The committee and the consultants went through all of the standards. We noted that almost all of the applicants have received accreditation with excellence. The typical reason a pool is not receiving the excellence designation is funding sufficiency.

Throughout these standards a number were moved from excellence to required based on committee discussion that concluded;

  1. There has not been any significant issues in pools not meeting the standard and
  2. The nature of the requirement should now be considered standard

These new standards will go into effect on January 1, 2021 and our provided on the CAJPA website here.

Thank you,

Kimberly Dennis

CAJPA Accreditation Committee Chair
