Who Certifies?
In the past, certification was relevant mainly to professionals who were required to provide measurable evidence of a level of skill or knowledge. Medical staff, technicians, teachers, and other professionals achieved and maintained certification as a professional requirement. More recently, exam‐based certification is used to provide proven levels of expertise in specific tools, products, and methodologies. As a result, new certification programs are being established and are attracting a different type of candidate including:
  • Employees who play a critical role in their organization, to support, create, and innovate.
  • Independent consultants who use certification credentials to ensure they have the knowledge, skills, and resources to get the job done.
  • Post‐secondary students completing a course or learning program.
Certification is High Stakes
Achieving certification may have significant outcomes for exam takers.
  • For independents, certification is a means to attract new clients and projects.
  • For those employed by companies, certification may be required as part of a job role. For these candidates, reward and recognition may be contingent on successful certification.
  • For students, certification may be the exit requirement for a course or degree program.
