In this video, Steven speaks to the value of obtaining professional certification.
Professional certification serves as a professional reference, documenting that an individual’s professional knowledge and experience has been assessed by an impartial, third-party. Certification is typically earned from a professional society or an educational institution.
IAP2 Professional Certification recognizes individuals who already possess the essential competencies of a P2 practitioner – and provides an achievable goal for people joining the profession. If you haven’t done so already, please visit the Certification webpage to watch the webinars developed to familiarize you with the program.
