CARF 101s are presented in different formats depending on which accreditation area your programs fall under.
Aging Services (AS 101)
Behavioral Health/Child and Youth Services/Opioid Treatment Program (BH/CYS/OTP 101)
Employment and Community Services (ECS 101)
The onsite training format consists of comprehensive and engaging two-day training sessions designed to help organizations prepare for successful accreditation.
Participants will be given the opportunity to discuss and receive "hands-on" support from training faculty regarding the development and implementation of plans, policies, and procedures needed to demonstrate organizational conformance to the standards. Additional emphasis will be placed on areas where organizations or personnel new to CARF most often need guidance. Participants will have the opportunity to consult with the faculty one-on-one and participate in break-out sessions with other attendees.
Medical Rehabilitation (MED 101)
The web-based training format is being conducted as a pilot in 2017. It consists of a series of training modules that can be accessed online. The modules can be viewed as many times as desired, and shared with as many staff members as needed, within the calendar year.
Each module is approximately 30–60 minutes and discusses topics around the development and implementation of plans, policies, and procedures needed to demonstrate organizational conformance to the standards. Each section of the standards manual has its own dedicated module, and includes discussions with real surveyors who answer questions and provide information.

The session on CARF accreditation standards was invigorating, and provided me with the energy, motivation, and voice to influence change. The session simplified the process and was fluid and integrative concerning day-to-day activities. I am pleased to hear that accreditation is not another “add on”, and supports the person-centered philosophy.
