AABB assessors are a vital part of the AABB Accreditation Program. As highly skilled health care professionals from AABB-accredited organizations, AABB assessors bring their invaluable experience, knowledge and insight to facilities around the world.
There is tremendous pride and prestige associated with serving as an AABB assessor. This is a select group of experts in the field who wear their assessor badge proudly and view the AABB assessor community as an exclusive professional network.
AABB assessors reflect the AABB membership at large and are highly educated with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, at a minimum 2 years in the field, and hail from around the world.
Many assessors perform shiftwork on a 24-hour schedule in their primary job and often conduct their education and volunteer work as an assessor during non-work hours. The assessor program requires the assessor to complete a minimum of two assessments per year. Annual assessor training is required and the Continuing Education Report, which documents 65 hours of discipline-specific continuing education, must be submitted every two years to maintain assessor status. Additionally, with assessors in different time zones, the Assessor Training Program provides flexibility in maintaining continuing education requirements.
The AABB Accreditation Assessor Program offers accredited facilities a cost-effective solution for professional development for staff, while enhancing a facility’s quality assurance program. Learn more on how you or your staff can become an AABB Assessor.
AABB’s Assessor Training Program is accredited by IEEA, and is one of only a few accredited training programs in the world.
NOTE: As of January 4, 2022, all AABB Assessors are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in in-person assessments. Please review AABB's Vaccination Policy Update for more information.
