ACCET Complaint Policy
NOTICE TO STUDENTS: ACCET COMPLAINT PROCEDURE
This institution is recognized by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET) as meeting and maintaining certain standards of quality. It is the mutual goal of ACCET and the institution to ensure that educational training programs of quality are provided. When problems arise, students should make every attempt through the formal complaint procedure within the institution to find a fair and reasonable solution.
However, in the event that a student has exercised the channels available within the institution to resolve the problem(s) by way of the institution's formal student complaint procedure, and the problem(s) have not been resolved, the student has the right and is encouraged to take the following steps:
Complaints should be in writing and mailed, faxed, or emailed to the ACCET office. Complaints received by phone will be documented, and the complainant will be requested to submit the complaint in writing.
The letter of complaint must contain the following:
A detailed description of the problem(s);
The approximate date(s) that the problem(s) occurred;
The full name(s) and title(s) or position(s) of the individual(s) involved in the problem(s), including both institutional staff and/or other students who were involved;
Evidence demonstrating that the institution's complaint procedure was followed prior to contacting ACCET;
The name and mailing address of the complainant; if the complainant specifically requests that anonymity be maintained, ACCET will not reveal his or her name to the institution involved.
In addition to the letter of complaint, copies of any relevant supporting documentation should be forwarded to ACCET (e.g., the student’s enrollment agreement, the syllabus or course outline, correspondence between the student and the institution).
