Course Assessor Pool for Course Assessment Committee (CAC)

The ASAR Board of Directors is seeking sonographers to serve on the Course Assessor Pool. Members of the Course Assessor Pool are selected to participate on a Course Assessment Committee (CAC). The role of the CAC is to review applications submitted by a Course Provider seeking course accreditation and make a recommendation to the ASAR Board in regard to the outcome of applications for accreditation.


Members of the CAC are selected from the ASAR Course Assessor Pool, which is a cohort of people approved by the Board who have skills and expert knowledge of sonography, specialist disciplines, and/or expertise in education and training.


ASAR is now seeking Course Assessors for the pool. Interested individuals are requested to compete and return the Expression of Interest Form.
