ISPO Accreditation Resources




In 2018 ISPO International has launched the new ISPO Education Standards for Prosthetic/Orthotic Occupations, as well as the associated ISPO Education Standards Handbook: Process and Procedures for Accreditation

Updating outmoded terminology and reflecting the modern shift towards progressive, outcome-based models of accreditation, while preserving the fundamental tenets of the profession and integrity of the accreditation process, the new peer-developed Standards reflect the international community’s core values and unifying principles and will ensure both consistency and quality in prosthetic and orthotic education worldwide.

The supporting Education Standards Handbook outlines the process and procedures for ISPO accreditation and improves on previous documentation by providing greater clarity and transparency. As part of this update, ISPO is moving from a manual to an automated system to streamline and optimize the accreditation process.
