ICE Online Library of Credentialing Industry Research

Welcome! ICE members offer a wealth of experience and knowledge, and ICE provides the collective voice needed to establish and enhance the value of credentialing programs. ICE is proud to develop the first Online Library of Credentialing Industry Research. This online library will serve as a one-stop source for resources and research on best practice in the industry. Thank you for your patience as we continue to build this tool.

About the Online Library of Credentialing Industry Research

We know that our members are conducting research and contributing to advancements and improvements in credentialing. Now, we offer a venue to share and view those findings. The online library's content will be organized into five categories:

1. Governance and Administration of Certification Programs,
2. Assessment of Professional Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities and Continuing Competency,
3. Administration and Scoring of Certification Assessments,
4. Emerging Trends for the Future of Certification, and
5. Other

Content will be listed alphabetically by the sponsoring organization or individual author's name within each category.

Sharing research has never been easier

Would you like to share your organization’s research with other credentialing organizations through our Online Library of Credentialing Industry Research?

Then, email the form and your research to

ICE volunteers from both our Publications and our Research & Development committees will review the content to ensure that the research is relevant to the credentialing community at large rather than promotional. Once reviewed and approved, ICE staff will email approval confirmation to the original submitter and post the content.

Both non-members and ICE members alike are encouraged to submit documents to post in the Online Library of Credentialing Industry Research. However, only ICE members will be able to access the content in the library.

Thank you for your support of the industry!
