    Join the discussion on how an educational accreditor and a certification body have collaborated to achieve ISPO accreditation for their orthotist and prosthetist training program and benefit from the validation by a recognized external body. The goal of reaching accreditation by complying with ISPO Education Standards for Prosthetic/Orthotic Occupations can often be enhanced with two or more organizations working together as partners to identify assets, improve areas of weakness and provide the appropriate information, data and statements required as part of the application process. These two US-based organizations will discuss the opportunities recognized, successes and challenges faced while working toward ISPO accreditation and reaccreditation validating demonstrated compliance to internationally-accepted standards. The details of how this collaboration has been successful and how those details can be applied in other countries will be discussed.
