Keeping PATH Intl. members updated about the Accreditation of the PATH Intl. Registered Therapeutic Riding Instructor  Certification
Trek to Accrediting
the PATH Intl. Registered Therapeutic Riding Instructor Certification
September 8, 2017
Announcing the PATH Intl. Credentialing Council Representatives

PATH Intl. is proud to announce the members elected to the inaugural PATH Intl. Credentialing Council (PICC). 

The credentialing council voting representatives commencing their terms as of September 8, 2017 are:
  • Bill Lavin: PATH Intl. Lead Site Visitor Representative
  • Regan Mays: PATH Intl. Therapeutic Riding Instructor, Registered Level Representative
  • Patricia McCowan: Representative at Large
  • John Murdoch: PATH Intl. Certified Driving Instructor, Level I Representative
  • Stephanie Roeter: PATH Intl. Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning Representative
The council will first convene via conference call to discuss its first task of selecting a public member representative. Per NCCA standards, a public member must be included to represent the population served by PATH Intl. certification and accreditation programs. The public member cannot be a member of PATH Intl., certified by PATH Intl., nor be employed by an EAAT center. The ideal candidate for this position is an EAAT participant, parent, center board member or volunteer.

The credentialing council will hold its first face-to-face meeting in November, concurrent with the PATH Intl. Conference and Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. At this meeting, the council will be provided guidance by representatives of Professional Testing, Inc., to establish the council's goals and trajectory toward accreditation of the registered therapeutic riding instructor certification.

Please join the association in congratulating those PATH Intl. members elected to the council and thanking them for volunteering their personal time and resources to represent the membership in the pursuit of third-party accreditation. With this council in place, we celebrate a momentous step toward achieving accreditation and the professionalization of PATH Intl. credentials.

What's next?
The results of the job task analysis for the position of registered level therapeutic riding instructor will be shared. The data that was collected from this job task analysis now becomes the foundation of the work to be conducted by the incoming credentialing council.
