AACVPR Program Certification is the only peer-review accreditation process designed to review individual cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation programs for adherence to standards and guidelines developed and published by AACVPR and other professional societies. AACVPR-certified programs are recognized as leaders in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation because they offer the most advanced practices available. Are you ready to take your program to the next level? This session will review the 2014 certification process and discuss the requirements page by page of the application. Participants will also hear the most common reasons for denial of certification. Programs seeking AACVPR Certification for the first-time and those renewing their certification are invited to attend.
