One year ago the Professional Development Section Council of ASAE approved the Core Competencies for Certification Personnel. I can't believe I haven't shared them here so I'm doing so now! If you are new to certification this document is a great guide to what you should know and be able to do to be successful in your certificaiton role. If you are a supervisor of certification staff, this should be helpful to you in developing job descriptions and/or performance expectations or planning ongoing learning opportunities for your staff.
If you have feedback on the document or have suggestions for supplemental guidance documents (a self-assessment, as an example) that would help you in your work, please let me know.
