Employee Certification Features

Employee certification can do wonders for your business

Employee certification test programs certainly are not new and have existed in some industries for decades. Those that have been shown to be effective tend to have the following characteristics:

  • Administered by a third party

    A self-administered employee certification program generally raises issues regarding conflict of interest. Third-party involvement ensures objectivity and integrity regarding the administration and scoring of employee certification tests.

  • Comprehensive assessment

    Employees are usually administered written tests and/or job performance tests in a number of specialized areas. The number of items per certification test varies, depending on the subject matter.

  • Standardized process

    Stringent guidelines are often followed to minimize errors and maximize efficiency during the certification testing process.

  • Test standards

    To become fully certified, individuals must meet the established standard on each certification exam in the battery. A relatively high score on one test cannot compensate for a low score on another test.

  • Recertification

    In some certification assessment programs, certified individuals are required to complete additional certification tests after a specified period of time (e.g., every year) to maintain their certification status.
