What exactly is a Certificate Training?

Certificate Program is a non-degree- granting structured learning program that is designed to meet specific and pre-determined learning outcomes and for which individual achievement of intended learning outcomes is measured. It is different than a standard training program that issues a certificate of attendance, the key distinction is that certificate programs use a measurement of learner achievement (test). Similar to an academic degree it does NOT speak to the ability to perform a specific job or career, but does demonstrate successful attainment of the information presented during the training.

Per Credentialing Industry practices, the organization issuing the Certificate Program (SVN) must also be the provider (SVN) of the educational program. This is an OPTIONAL Program, and specifically SVN members can elect to meet the SVN 24 hour training requirement independently of this program. It is worth noting that during the 3 year environmental survey conducted through the work of the Credentialing committee, almost half of the members responded that there were not sufficient training opportunities in their areas. This program was developed to meet the need for training for those providers who have difficulty meeting the SVN training standards, or who may want formal recognition for attaining the certificate that is issued.

Please note that while this program was designed to specifically meet the SVN standards, it may possibly meet specific State and/or government requirements in your area. Each attendee is encouraged to seek counsel to verify applicability in their area.
