PASA Accreditation webinar – Tuesday 8th September 2020, 10am

Join us at 10am on Tuesday 8th September for our webinar dedicated to PASA’s accreditation process.

Has your organisation considered PASA accreditation? Who can apply for the process? How do you get started? What if we have more than one administration site? Is it expensive? What are the benefits? How is PASA accreditation different to other quality assessments? What happens if we don’t achieve the standard? How long does the accreditation period last and what happens next?


Tune in to find the answers to all of the above questions and more. PASA is holding it’s first webinar dedicated to our exclusive accreditation programme.
