An application for full accreditation for a new course must be submitted as soon as the inaugural cohort of students commence studying the third to last semester of the course.
Education providers must liaise with the Course Accreditation Manager four months before the application is to be submitted, to schedule a mutually agreeable date for the application submission.
The Course Accreditation Manager will issue a deposit invoice (10% of the full application fee) three months before the agreed application submission date. This non-refundable deposit must be paid two months before the agreed application submission date. An invoice for the balance (90% of the application fee) will be issued upon receipt of the application. Please refer to ESSA’s web page Course Accreditation Fees, which lists all fees associated with course accreditation.
Education providers must ensure they have read and understood the Course Accreditation Guide and the appendices (Exercise Science Standards and Accredited Exercise Physiologist Professional Standards) before completing and submitting a course accreditation application.
