NAME Inspector Training Course

The NAME Inspector Training Course will be held Friday, October 9, 2020 from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM CDT

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course emphasizes the policies and procedures associated with the National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME) on-site inspection for core accreditation.  The course content emphasizes the process of scheduling, conducting and completing a medicolegal office inspection.  Both generic and specific inspection strategies are discussed to ensure standardized inspections across all jurisdictional types and configurations (i.e., medical examiner, coroner, state, regional, local).  In addition, several verification methods are described to assist future inspectors in determining office compliance with NAME inspection and accreditation standards.

Additional Requirement: Course completers are also required to “ride-along” with a certified inspector to observe and participate in a full on-site inspection.

 OBJECTIVES: As a result of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the goals of the NAME I&A program.
  • Describe the three levels of core accreditation (Full, Provisional, None)
  • Describe the difference between full-service and autopsy-only accreditation.
