The process to achieve certification and to maintain it includes four phases:
- Assessment: carry out a gap analysis of the operator training organization against the Training Organizational Audit Checklist to determine whether the requirements are being met and, if not, what steps should be taken to ensure they are met successfully.
- Validation: conduct a final validation to verify that the findings and gaps brought up during the assessment have been addressed to determine conformity with the criteria and standards set forth in the program.
- Certification: being recognized and registered, after successful completion of the validation as a Certified for Excellence in Corporate Training. The certificate is valid for 24 months.
- Re-certification: re-validation to check and ensure continued improvements and conformity with the criteria and standards set forth in the program.
