Session Description: 

Assessment-based certificate (ABC) programs can be a valuable addition to your credential portfolio. ABCs are particularly useful for providing recognition for a specialty area of practice or training in a particular set of skills. This interactive presentation focuses on the business case for ABC programs, using a case study. We will discuss potential benefits of ABC programs, factors to consider when conducting a business analysis, and considerations for ABC program development when accreditation is a goal.
