THE CREDENTIAL APPLICATION PROCESS:

Each "box" from the CAREER PATH MATRIX graphic below represents a real-world job-role as well as a COMPETENCY CERTIFICATION - we have seniority levels and specialism streams so that you can DEMONSTRATE your COMPETENCY, KNOWLEDGE and CAPABILITY in respect to your REAL-WORLD JOB ROLE.

The process utilises a CERTIFICATION BOARD who are an INDEPENDENT PANEL of experienced practitioners, who are responsible for reviewing the findings and recommendations of GUILD ASSESSORS and either accepting or rejecting those recommendations and making the final decision as to whether a practitioner should be issued with the Certification that he / she has applied for.  

You can also join as a NON-CERTIFIED if you wish too, so why not review our Guild Membership & Members
