ACA consultant auditors are experienced correctional professionals who are
approved by the Director of Standards and Accreditation.
The average auditor has worked in corrections for more than 18 years
with experience supervising and evaluating the type of programs being
reviewed for accreditation.
Auditors are also utilized for field consultation, re-audits and monitoring
visits to accredited or certified programs.
To be considered for approval as an ACA auditor, you must:
- Complete the auditor orientation course and test with
a passing score of 75% or higher;
- Submit a resume showing five years experience in
corrections, three at the supervisory level;
- Be a current member of ACA;
- Submit a letter of recommendation from the
Director/CEO of your agency.

required prior to submission of a resume and recommendation.
Passing the orientation course DOES NOT certify an individual as an
ACA auditor, but is a crucial step in the process.
An individual becomes a certified ACA auditor once he or she has been
approved by the Director, Standards and Accreditation.
