Important Announcement Regarding Program Access to New COAccess System

The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) is excited to inform you of the successful migration to and launch of the new COAccess system, built using Salesforce. The new COAccess offers a simplified navigation process, password reset, streamlined in-software communication, automated task reminders, and many other features. The new system will allow the COA to better support nurse anesthesia programs, onsite reviewers, and COA Directors.

Training on the Use of the New System

The COA is committed to ensuring that programs successfully transition to the new version of COAccess. The COA will offer a variety of training resources, including individual and group training sessions, reference manuals, and recorded tutorials. A training schedule will be published and programs will be scheduled for sessions based on the next due date in their accreditation process. The following is an estimated timeline for training:

  • Programs wishing to submit clinical site applications: Ongoing beginning in July – August 2021
  • Programs with October 2021 COA meeting submissions: July – August 2021
  • Programs with Fall 2021 Self Study Submissions: August 2021

The COA is granting programs access to the new system on an as-needed basis. If your program meets any of the criteria above, please contact Liza Curiel at to setup a training date and time.
