As shown, only 11 programs have successfully qualified in the Level IV-Phase 2 survey visit in 2016. There were actually  20 programs that were visited for Level IV-Phase 2; but some programs still need to comply with the mandatory requirements prior to the granting of the award while a few were not able to make it and are thus required to undergo the same level of survey visit again.
