Tools and Resources for Club-Level Certifications
TOOLS FOR THE ORGANIZER
Thank you for taking on the task of Certification Organizer. The members testing at the certification have studied diligently. Now, through your best efforts, they get their chance to shine and share how USPC has truly had a life-changing impact on them. They move forward to their next level with bold confidence, by passing the local test you produce.
PLANNING a CERTIFICATION - HELPFUL DOCUMENTS:
Link to USPC Organizers Handbook - USE THIS TOOL!
Organizer's Checklist - created by the Oregon Region
Candidate Information Letter and Packing List - created by the Oregon Region
D1-C2 Certification Resources – this includes tools for administering a test including guidelines to testings, test prep materials, test sheets, examiner resources, certification updates, press release templates and much more – (must have a secure login to the USPC website to access)
Oregon Region Examiner and Apprentice List
Recommended Certification Fees & Examiner Compensation
Suggestions for Certification Schedules - Do you have questions about how to create a schedule? Ideally the examiner has final say, but most examiners find it helpful to have a start point from the organizer, then they review and revise.
Recommended courses - This information can be found in the standards column of the local level testing page on the USPC secure site.
Impartial Observer Instructions – This document helps the organizer understand the role of the I.O. (Impartial Observer) and who might make a good candidate.
Make sure you understand the USPC retest policy: If a Candidate does not meet Standards (DNMS) in any part of one (or more) section(s) of the test, re-testing on these sections may be appropriate. The allowed number of sections to be re-tested is stated on each test sheet, and re-testing is strictly limited to that number. Re-test must take place prior to December 1st of the following year.
