Certification Visit Options
PTDI offers two options for the visit to review your program. A visit is required to have your program certified. Visit fees are included in the cost of certification.
Option A: (onsite visit) requires less administrative time from the applicant, but includes the cost of bringing an evaluator onsite to affirm the organization meets certification standards. The applicant provides less documentation in advance, saving staff time, but must provide the onsite evaluator access to all requested records, personnel and facilities during the onsite visit. Total initial certification fee $4500. An onsite visit is strongly encouraged for initial certification.
Option B: (virtual visit) requires more administrative time from the applicant but doesn't include the costs associated with bringing an evaluator onsite. The evaluation is conducted over the internet ("virtual visit"), but the applicant must electronically submit documents, photos and videos for the evaluator to review. Total initial certification fee $3000.
After you submit your application you must complete the form that matches your choice. Links to the forms will be provided on the confirmation screen and are available on the PTDI web site.
