A comprehensive volume dealing on the subject of Asia Pacific Accreditation and Certification Commission (APACC): its implementing organization; criteria of evaluation and the procedures on rating; the preparation of various requirements before on-site visit, including a general treatment of these tasks during and after the activity; and the definition of roles of Accreditors are documented in a volume entitled APACC Accreditation Manual. The tool for evaluation of TVET institutions is printed as a document entitled Accreditation Instrument. These two volumes constitute a complete guide to accreditation.


This Handbook for Accreditors, on the other hand, comes handy and gives a detailed description of the guides and procedures intended to help the Accreditors in undertaking an actual on-site visit. It should be treated as suggestive guidelines, rather than view it as a book of prescriptions.


There are many forms by which an accrediting agency can be structured; a number of criteria which can be identified; enumerable procedures wanting to be adopted; multiple models of assessment; and numerous roles of stakeholders. This will all depend on the immediate purpose of accreditation, the environment of the evaluation system, the stage of development of technical education and vocational training (TVET), and the judgment of policy or decision-makers.


There are two prominent models of accreditation adopted around the world: program and institutional.  In the APACC scheme, institutional accreditation is preferred, covering accreditation and certification of TVET institutions of higher technical and non-degree technical education, and vocational training in Asia and the Pacific region.

APACC has developed  its own accreditation criteria, based on the standards set by the different countries. These criteria and guidelines led themselves to a predominantly quantitative evaluation.  It is conceived, as is the standard practice of quality assurance or accreditation systems around the world, that the qualitative aspects will be covered in the subsequent stages of accreditation.


The system of awarding an accreditation status is a multi-level one rather than a “yes” or “no” scheme, (accredited or not accredited). A threshold number of points  is set to qualify for an accredited status which can be awarded a Level I, II or III status, depending on the number of points earned by the institution.


It is hoped that this handbook would prove useful to the Accreditor as he gets engaged in the details of evaluating an institution, and also to the host institution who would be subjected to evaluation, as it prepares itself for a visit by external review team.
