Can I complete the OCI/OEI Accreditation Workshop after the Reflective Practice Workshop? No. You will first need to complete the LSI/GSI Technical Workshop.
Do I need to do a separate Recall for every tool I want to be accredited in?
No. You need attend only one within the 12 month time limit.
If I have already completed LSI/GSI Accreditation and want to do OCI/OEI Accreditation do I need to complete the Recall Workshop first?
Only if you are outside the 12 month time limit.
What is the timeframe to complete all the requirements for Re-Accreditation?
You will need to renew your Accreditation status every 12 months. The Accreditation period runs from 1st January to 31 December each year. Renewal of Accreditation status will depend on whether you have met your Re-Accreditation requirements in the previous calendar year.
Is there an annual Re-Accreditation registration fee?
Why do you have product usage as a requirement?
One of the basic principles behind being a Human Synergistics® Accredited Practitioner is that you are a regular user of the tools. In return, we provide our Accredited Practitioners with extensive support in both marketing and professional practice.
What if I am not able to meet my product usage requirements with the 12 month Re-Accreditation period?
Your status will change to Conditional. This status will come into play for 12 months. The tools can still be accessed but your reports will only be issued to you once a Conditional session has been undertaken with a Human Synergistics Consultant. LSI and L/I or M/I require a 1 hour session. OCI requires a 2 hour session and OCI/OEI requires a 3 hour session.
If my Accreditation lapses, how do I become Accredited again? If you (lapse) more than two years ago then you will need to participate in the full Accreditation programme again. If you become Accredited within two years of lapsing than we offer you a 50% rebate.
Do you have Recognition of Prior Learning for Accreditation?
