As you know, COMTA is a specialized programmatic accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. What you may not know is that to maintain that recognition, COMTA must go through a process very similar to the accreditation process with a narrative report, exhibits, and observation of our proceedings by a knowledgeable reviewer every few years.
Our most recent period of recognition was due to be renewed in June 2009. However, due to changes in the structure of the group which reviews all accrediting agencies our review has been postponed for some time. We are now scheduled to be reviewed on December 1, 2010. This review includes our renewal of recognition as well as consideration of our request to add aesthetics/skin care to our scope of accreditation.
