  • ASPRS Certification Program Accredited by CESB
    review and now the Programs have also passed a demanding review which places them on par with other important nationally accredited certifications in engineering and related scientific fields The ASPRS programs are currently the only accredited geospatial certifications in the United States During the review process leading to accreditation CESB required ASPRS to make a few minor changes to the Programs including shifting the continuing education requirement from the previous proprietary points based system to Professional Development Hours PDH increasing the PDH requirement from 75 hours to 100 hours for the professionals and 50 hours to 60 hours for the technologists re designating the provisional certifications designed to assist students during their transition to professional status in order to avoid using the term certified and isolating any training related to the Program However the strong foundations of the existing certifications have been retained and enhanced The overall strength of the ASPRS Certification Program was previously well understood and respected in the geospatial community and these changes only serve to further improve the Program said ASPRS Executive Director James Plasker Accreditation also brings increased credibility to those individuals holding the various levels of ASPRS certification with the result that the value and importance of their credentials is further enhanced he added CESB is an independent voluntary membership body created for its member organizations who recognize through specialty certification the expertise of individuals practicing in engineering and related fields CESB as an accrediting body provides basic criteria and guidelines for the establishment and operation of specialty certification programs for engineers technologists technicians and related scientific it serves as a recognizing body for organizations that certify individuals it represents its members in communications and when appropriate in negotiations with public and private agencies groups and individuals with respect to matters of common interest
