Section 50 of the National Law requires ANMAC to monitor programs of study approved by the NMBA to ensure the program and education provider continue to meet the approved accreditation standards. To meet these requirements, ANMAC has developed monitoring methods—routine, targeted or random. This enables ANMAC to tailor monitoring activities to each program.
Methods of monitoring depends on the program’s risk rating. Low-risk programs have lower monitoring requirements. High-risk programs have higher requirements.
Monitoring of an accredited program can include:
- reviewing the Program Monitoring Report provided by the education provider
- reviewing reporting requirements
- conducting site visits
- reviewing complaints
|Monitoring activities will include routine and random opportunities||Monitoring activities will be targeted to the identified risk areas and will include routine and random opportunities||Monitoring activities will increase and will include routine, targeted and random opportunities|
How to complete the Program Monitoring Report
ANMAC will send the Program Monitoring Report template to the education provider one month before the approved program’s anniversary date. The completed report is due on the anniversary date.
The completed report is reviewed by an Associate Director to confirm the program continues to be delivered as accredited against the relevant accreditation standards. The information in the report is also used to complete a risk assessment.
How to meet other monitoring activities will be discussed with the education provider as required.
