Best Practices in Recertification & Continuing Competence
About This Webinar
James P. Henderson, PhD
Executive Vice President, Castle Worldwide
Credentialing organizations devote significant time and money to ensure that the processes used for initial certification and licensure are defensible and of high quality. Does your organization devote the same time and resources to your recertification process?
Continuing competence and the renewal of certification and licensure are topics that credentialing organizations are focusing on more and more because credentialing organizations permit individuals to use their name and acronym for the entire career, usually without evidence that the individuals have maintained proficiency at an acceptable level. This presentation reviews the work that has been done by ICE and several other organizations to clarify best practices in this important area.
Webinar Learning Objectives
- propose considerations in the design or redesign of renewal programs in certification and licensure
- identify the strengths and weaknesses of various program elements as measures of continuing competence
- describe procedures that may be used to evaluate the effectiveness of renewal programs in certification and licensure
