Definition of Terms

Primary Site is a site where an IMSLEC-accredited training course is consistently offered over time.

Satellite Site is a permanent site away from the primary site where an identical IMSLEC-accredited training course is consistently offered over time by satellite site instructors.

Alternate Site is a site where an IMSLEC-accredited training course is offered one or more times by a qualified instructor from the primary site.

It is expected that the complexity and time spent in accreditation review and on-site evaluation process will increase with each training level and satellite sites. Expenses for travel, lodging and meals incurred by the visiting team during its on-site evaluation are in addition to these accreditation fees.
