                achieve and maintain JRCERT accreditation.

         a separate accreditation award and does not recognize branch campuses.  The JRCERT recognizes a

         documentation of all program official qualifications, including updated curricula vitae and current ARRT
         certification and registration, or equivalent documentation.  This documentation is not required to be
         entered into the Accreditation Management System (AMS).  Newly appointed institutional administrators,
