Are you an employer looking for an experience-based training and development program to motivate your employees?
Shopping for an adventure program is a difficult task. There are hundreds of organizations from which to choose. How can you know which programs meet or exceed industry standards? Accredited Programs are the ones out there striving to be the best! Programs that have gone through the AEE Accreditation process have distinguished themselves in the growing field of experiential education. At the time of the accreditation review, programs must demonstrate compliance with the standards for adventure programs in experiential education. These are the only published standards in the field of adventure/experiential education and have been in development for over 20 years. AEE accredits a wide variety of adventure organizations including wilderness programs, colleges and university outdoor programs, K-12 school programs, wilderness therapy programs, youth programs, and corporate training and teambuilding programs.
Attaining accredited status through the AEE Accreditation Program is evidence of an organization's commitment to quality, belief in professional standards, and allocation of resources toward continuous improvement. Find a Program!
