Please read the instructions and timeline below carefully:

  1. May 2022: Service program managers contact training sites to prepare for the next cycle of reviews. 
  2. May 2022: Training site points of contact set up ACE accounts on the MTEP Portal.

Understanding Review Readiness

The service program manager and ACE will analyze the review requests and determine the level of readiness for virtual reviews. Schoolhouses that have not done a virtual review can use the information below to evaluate their readiness for a virtual review.

Readiness Criteria:

This analysis is based on criteria such as:

  • Electronic availability of course materials
  • Point of contact (POC) availability
  • Course count/academic hour average
  • Content areas covered
  • Occupation count
  • Virtual capability for occupation interviews

Readiness Levels:

Review readiness levels are defined in the following way:

  • Level 1—not eligible for virtual reviews, but will be considered for remediation and/or onsite reviews (e.g., course materials are not in digital formats; course count and/or academic hour average are too large for a virtual review)
  • Level 2—not eligible for virtual reviews until the identified areas are remedied (e.g., course materials in partial digital formats)
  • Level 3—ready for a virtual review (e.g., course materials available in digital formats; course count fits virtual review guidelines)
