APPLE ALERT: New Standards Manual & Self-Scoring Checklist03-Aug-2016
We are pleased to announce the new and revised 2016 Standards and Procedures Manual and the 2016 Portfolio Self-Scoring Checklist. Both are available on our website or by following this link http://www.faccm.org/memberarea/. Your FACCM team is here to ensure that the transition to our revised standards is as simple as possible.
Portfolios and verifications will be based on the 2016 standards and procedures for all APPLE applications received on or after August 1st, 2016. If you have already submitted your APPLE application, you may choose to use the 2014 or 2016 standards and procedures.
Additionally, as of August 1, 2016, you will receive a courtesy email from the APPLE office the day before the verification visit. Based on the feedback from our membership, we believe this will help with the uneasiness many of our centers reported experiencing during the period of the three-week window. However, this courtesy email does not provide the opportunity to change or cancel your verification visit date.
We encourage each of our members to review the new standards and procedures completely. Please contact the APPLE HQ if you have any questions regarding the new standards or checklist. Please contact FACCM HQ if you need your login and password information.
