The Open Professions Milestones
Applications for milestones and milestone certification can be submitted here.
See below for an overview of the stepwise milestone-based certification.
A STEPWISE PATH TO CERTIFICATION
Certification is awarded through experience-based profile assessments by recognized industry experts, within their appropriate field, so no examination is required. Certification is broken down into three stages – to allow you to manage your certification at a pace that is most suitable to you and to allow you to show evidence for your expertise more quickly.
Step One - Obtain 4-5 Milestone Badges (four for Levels 1 & 3, five for Level 2). Candidates submit separate Milestone Application Forms, which are then evaluated independently. After earning all the required Milestone Badges, proceed to Step Two.
Step Two - Complete the Certification Application to apply for certification
Step Three - Attend the peer review board
PROGRESS THROUGH CERTIFICATION AT THREE LEVELS
- Master Certified
Individuals who have certified through the single-package approach are able to re-certify by earning two badges - a Professional Development badge and an Experience Profile Milestone Badge (or alternatively a Declaration of Continued Practice). Further information on re-certification is available here.
