The necessary criteria to get credentials are appropriate experience grown along time and demonstration of competence in a specialized field. The evaluation process consists in a rigorous examination of the candidate's CV, validation and authentication of experiential and specialized skills required for an accredited credential award: WCP (World Certified Professional), WCS (World Certified Specialist), WCM (World Certified Master).
The evaluation process also involves the assessment and determination of a profile that corresponds to the criteria of Best Practices whether it is a Specialist, Expert or Master level.
The evaluation process is managed by the Secretariat and implemented through a qualification verification supervised by the AHQSE Lead Assessors. The evaluation process normally takes about 1/2 weeks.
The result is a composite score, sum of assessment categories scores relating to several professional profile aspects. The assessment categories are consistent with AHQSE competence compliance standards.
The validity of Credential Certificates granted to individuals can be publicly verified on the AHQSE home page under "CREDENTIAL VERIFICATION" by entering the certificate number.
