A combined total of  923 accreditors complete the training in 2016.

Of this number, 400 completed  the training of senior accreditors on the accreditation of higher level programs and team leadership, which were held in six different dates and locations.  The first batch of this training was held at the Great Eastern Hotel, Quezon City, on May 3-6, 2016 with 42 participants. This was followed by the training for the Visayas regions, held at Iloilo Science and Technology University on May 18-21, 2016 with 66 participants. Then the training for Mindanao followed, held at De Luxe Hotel, Cagayan de Oro City, on June 8-11, 2016 with 83 participants. For the training in Metro Manila regions, there were three sets of training conducted, all of which were held at Philippine Normal University, on three different dates; June 14-17, 2016 with 89 participants; July 6-8, 2016 with 77 participants; and finally on August 29-31, 2016 with 43 participants.

The year 2016 has marked a new paradigm for all AACCUP trainings nationwide.

First, there was the training for the trainers which was conducted last October 1-2, 2016 at Cloud 9 Resort, Antipolo, Rizal.

Second, new members of the training team were added, to make it more centralized geographically (please refer to the list below).

Finally, new training materials and methods were adopted during the training, thereby giving more emphasis on the workshops . This paradigm shift on the delivery of trainings hopes to develop a more objective and more responsible group of accreditors who would then be evaluating the different academic programs in the country.
