Assessment-Based Certificate Programs Webcast Series

Certification programs and certificate programs are designed to meet very different needs. The organization that aims to recognize professionals who meet established knowledge, skills, or competencies (as in certification) may be missing an opportunity to build capacity and recognition of a specialty area of practice or set of skills.

This three-part educational series provides information on the the purpose of assessment-based certificate programs and the sound instructional design principles that should be integrated into them.

  • Organizations considering launching a new credential for their industry
  • Staff members of any organization that currently offers education and training
  • Service providers that assess client needs and provide strategic planning and program development
