As defined by the Society, certification is "the formal recognition by a cognizant peer group of the demonstrated accomplishment of proficiency with and the comprehension of the uniquely defined body of knowledge at the point in time." It is not a measure of competence.

Equal opportunity will be provided to all certification and exam proctor candidates regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, age, color, ancestry, mental or physical disability or handicap, veteran's status or any other classification protected by applicable law.
