Eventually, you'll move on to explore the accreditation requirements in the US, UK, and eventually internationally. Working closely with the Board Education Officer, workshop and field engineers, you will create a course program that meets these requirements to attract volunteers and ensure their hard work counts as a credit in their home institution.
