Although not realy a class, trainers need to know about certification challenges and when this is necessary.  In very rare circumstances, an instructor or Trainer may have their certification challenged.  The challenge can be initiated by almost anyone and is very serious business.  The challenge process has been carefully thought out by the ACA & SEIC to ensure a fair and unbiased review of the allegations.  Challenges may be made for a variety of short-comings like:

  • Careless disregard for safety when conducting classes.
  • Grossly inadequate discipline skills.
  • Blatant disregard of ACA policies & procedures.

The ACA-SEIC challenge process is very extensive and well documented in the SEIC policy manual in Chapter 5, section C.
