After a Certificate of Accreditation is Received
Once a course/curriculum is accredited by APPA, the submitting agency may indicate on promotional materials that “This [course/training] is accredited by the American Probation and Parole Association.”
APPA Accreditation approval does not give the submitting agency permission to attach the APPA logo to the course/training/curriculum, marketing materials, etc. There are additional requirements and regulations associated with using the APPA logo on other agency’s websites, materials, etc. Contact APPA for more information on these requirements and regulations.
