We have a clear step-by-step process presented below that enables you to apply for your certification quickly and efficiently.
Look at all of the below steps so you know the entire journey and are prepared every step of the way. You will need to submit an application and take an exam.
The application and exam will cover information and attestations specific to you, your organization, and your course/program. They also will cover the IAA Standards and IAA Code of Ethics.
Before you submit your materials, consider whether there are any improvements you can make to ensure your success. Is there a standard you are not reaching? Are there behaviors in the code of ethics you need to adopt? Each of us is always improving, so why not make some improvements before you apply!
Find the right application for your profession. It covers information about you, knowledge on professionalism and ethics as well as attestations to professional behaviors. The application is in the form of a course to help guide you and give clarity. You must pass the short quiz at the end of each "lecture" to be certified. The quizzes are open book, so feel free to have any materials at your fingertips. Our goal is to get to know you, your experience, and your expertise, as well as to make sure you abide by our standards and code of ethics. Oh, and relax; the quizzes are not timed.
You will know immediately if you pass the course. As soon as you pass, you will be given your downloadable certificate! If you do not pass the course and do not receive certification, you can retake the course as often as you need to. (Hey we know some people have test anxiety; It's okay). Our goal is your success! Retakes are $25 for each time.
You've got something to brag about! Let your clients know about that you are IAA certified by sharing your downloaded certificate on your website and your badge on your social media bios.
