Certification Process Options
PTDI offers two options for certification. Option A saves time. Option B saves money.
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 will not need to provide backup documentation in advance, saving staff time, but must provide the onsite evaluator access to all requested records, personnel and facilities during the onsite visit.
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.
