Map CoA-OMP has changed its name to the International Council of Accreditation (ICA)

Programs that have a degree have been identified. Programs without a formal degree usually provide students with a certificate of completion.

*Initial approval may be granted to new programs that have not yet completed the accreditation process before the first class of students graduate. Initial approval will grant the first graduating class eligibility to apply to take the IJCAHPO certification exams. Initial accreditation is valid for one year.
