Professional Standards Committee

The Professional Standards Committee was established in 2014 by combining two earlier committees, the Training Standards Committee and the Register Committee.  

The Professional Standards Committee provides strategic oversight of all activities relating to the PACFA’s Training Standards and the PACFA National Register.
