Hello All,
As members of the Anesthesia Community, who have worked with, as or will continue to work with Anesthesia Technologists and the public, I am reaching out to you for input on an amendment to the 2011 Anesthesia Technology Standards.
I am enclosing the proposed Standards, as will be put before the Standards Committee for approval. The change we are requesting is the addition of an additional Educational Sponsor in Section I. Current Standard is as follows:

I. Sponsorship
A. Sponsoring Educational Institution
A sponsoring institution must be a post-secondary academic institution accredited by an institutional accrediting agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, and must be authorized under applicable law or other acceptable authority to provide a post-secondary program, which awards a minimum of an Associate Degree at the completion of the program.
B. Consortium Sponsor
1. A consortium sponsor is an entity consisting of two or more members that exists for the purpose of operating an educational program. In such instances, at least one of the members of the consortium must meet the requirements of a sponsoring educational institution as described in I.A.
2. The responsibilities of each member of the consortium must be clearly documented as a formal affiliation, agreement  or memorandum of understanding, which includes governance and lines of authority.

The addendum to this Standard will be:

Sponsorship
A.  Sponsoring Educational Institution
A sponsoring institution must be one of the following:
1.          A post-secondary academic institution accredited by an institutional accrediting agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, and must be authorized under applicable law or other acceptable authority to provide a post-secondary program, which awards a minimum of an Associate Degree at the completion of the program.

2.        A hospital or medical center accredited by a healthcare accrediting agency or equivalent that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and authorized under applicable law or other acceptable authority to provide healthcare, which awards a minimum of a certificate at the completion of the program.

The Sponsor must ensure that the graduates of the program have obtained or will obtain an Associate degree upon completion of the program.

B.  Consortium Sponsor
1.   A consortium sponsor is an entity consisting of two or more members that exists for the purpose of operating an educational program. In such instances, at least one of the members of the consortium must meet the requirements of a sponsoring educational institution as described in I.A.
2.   The responsibilities of each member of the consortium must be clearly documented as a formal affiliation, agreement or memorandum of understanding, which includes governance and lines of authority.

As representatives of the Community of Interest, we would like to hear any comments you may wish to make in regards to Amended Standards. I need to have any comments returned to myself or Theresa Sisneros by tomorrow or at the latest Friday morning in order for us to meet the review  boards deadline.

Thank you for your interest in the Anesthesia Technology Profession.
