Accreditation Framework and Requirements

Accreditation Framework and Requirements


An accreditation framework for River Styles® work has been developed to ensure quality control. The following guidelines have been established for individuals applying principles from the River Styles® framework. By doing the River Styles® Short Course and passing the assessment, participants will be awarded provisional River Styler status. To become fully accredited, a River Styler completes a reviewed River Styles report. A River Styles® report has certain requirements that are also outlined in the downloadable pdf file.
