To do so, we support online educators with peer review, feedback, and only when earned accreditation by our organization.

 

Our board members come from serious online educational backgrounds. They are non-traditional. Our direct to the public online training approach was cutting edge in the 90s, but is commonplace now. That is why in part our peer review process is so unique. Most accreditation associations have backgrounds only from major academia. Having the experience with online education assures that the feedback we offer online educators helps them improve their content and improve their student’s results.

Our Process

Application Stage

When we receive an educational review application, we contact the provider and have them complete our application, and our peer review manual. Once they complete the full application we then contact the educational provider to decide what review package, they are requesting. Depending on their needs the processing of their request can take from 3-12 weeks.

Peer Review

Next we have the educators give us access to their educational materials. There are reviewed by member of our board. Each course or program reviewed is fully audited and detailed feedback provided as needed.

When educators earn our accreditation

If required the educational provider, then makes the recommended changes to improve their course. Once those changes are approved, the provider is then provided the E.A.A. Logo customized for that course. This can be used on the certificates for graduates, website for that single program, or as a sign of their participation in our peer review process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find the answer to our most often asked questions. We want you to be aware of what you need to make the most out of your visit to our website.

What kind of clients do you work with?

We work with online educators from the World over who offer training in English. At this time we do not traditionally work with the largest institutions since their accreditation is often address by members recognized already by the U.S. Department of Education, or more directly by approved accrediting associations on their list.

What is your turn around time?

The turnaround time for our process varies depending on the package ordered. The level of depth of the peer review and the number of courses involved. Typical time ranges are 3-12 weeks.

What are the benefits to our students?

Students receive peace of mind that your course has been reviewed for the quality of content. This also adds needed credibility to outside organizations, perspective employers, and others of the quality of the educational program. This can help them get the maximum benefit from your hard work developing quality training.

What are accrediting agencies, or associations?

Accrediting agencies are organizations (or bodies) that establish operating standards for educational or professional institutions and programs, determine the extent to which the standards are met, and publicly announce their findings.

Why are you not listed on the U.S. Department of Education's list?

We have not sought, nor intend to seek, the approval of the U.S. Department of Education at this time. This is not because we have any issue with the department, in fact we feel they are doing a tremendous job. This is especially true under the current administration. The costs of compliance with the understandably complex approval process goes against our developmental model and budget.

What are the costs of your services?

This is a very important question since the cost is often a barrier to entry for small online educational providers. We work hard to keep our costs low while providing astonishing benefits for the small training organizations online today. For complete details please review our plans and apply for the program you feel is right for your organization.

Who are your board members?

Our board members are successful trainers and online educators with over a 100 years of online educational experience. This is an amazing fact given that the internet has not been an active educational environment for much more than 20 years. Some of our board members are still very active trainers and educators. Dr. Ted Gambordella is a published author of over 40 books and 40 videos. Harry Warrick has been a corporate trainer, manager, and successful business owner who has published 30 books, and well over 100 training videos. Mr. Warrick is also the founder of Grand Cayman University in 1992 and a top online educator. Other Board Members Include Dr. James Henry Ph.D, and Mark Rush.

How can students verify our accreditation?

Each accredited course provider is listed along with the titles of their approved courses on our approved provider’s page. This gives peace of mind to your students and their potential employers of their training and education.

Do you only accredit courses?

We also offer rare accreditation to entire educational institutions. This is based on the knowledge of our board members, extensive course review, and an ongoing vetting process.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.

Having the peer review assistance helped us make improvements on our early courses. The experience was so impactful that we have joined the team.

Grand Cayman University

We feel as positive about our accreditation usage, and peer review as we do our ability to meet the requirements of OSHA.
