Such assignment must also be consistent with, and is subject to the scrutiny of, the relevant programmatic accreditation standards and practices. The CAHS faculty are responsible for oversight of the instructional practice of METC educators within the affiliated programs.

The number of personnel that are currently qualified and assigned to METC instructional positions and the respective credentials they must hold are detailed on CAHS METC Faculty Rosters for each affiliated program. Only full-time faculty are assigned to faculty or educator positions within the affiliated programs. The terms “faculty”, “instructor”, and “educator” are used interchangeably.
