This two-hour program (plus networking) explores the central principles surrounding credentialing programs with a real-world scenario/case study and how to put them all together. The program kicks off with a brief level-setting discussion on the best practices in credentialing (from introductory to advanced topics), followed up by small-group discussions on applying these practices to a credentialing program that we all may encounter in our certification worlds. This program focuses heavily on collaboration and small discussions as opposed to a traditional lecture or panel discussions throughout.
Participants might discuss topics including:
1. What are some challenges you see with the sample organization?
2. With the information provided, does this program seem sustainable in 5 years? 10 years?
3. With the information provided, what questions would you ask if this organization wanted to go global?
4. What recommendations do you have for this leadership team of this program to address candidates and their concerns about the security of the examinations?
