The costs associated with accreditation are the subscription to EMAP, the accreditation application fee, and the fees associated with the on-site assessment.
The cost of an EMAP subscription is $450 USD with discounts for multiple programs (see "Subscribe" for more information). Subscribing your program will provide, in addition to access to the online EMAP Self Assessment Tool, access to accreditation application, access to webinars and training courses, standards materials, and organization updates. Subscription involves no commitment to seek accreditation but is a means of acquiring standards and procedures materials for review and conducting your online self-assessment.
Accreditation application fees are paid at the time of application and vary based on the candidate jurisdiction's population. Following are accreditation application fees as set by the EMAP Commission. All fees are in U.S. Dollar.
