1. What is a certification?

  • A certification is formal recognition of successfully undergoing a process of learning and development to obtain an official document attesting to a level of achievement.
  • A certification is also referred to as a credential
  • A certification is awarded after an individual goes through a credentialing or a certification process, which includes meeting the education and work experience requirements of the credentialing body, and then passing the certification exam.
  • A certification is neither a degree nor a license and has a limited time before needing renewal.
  • Certifications are earned from a body specializing in the profession of interest.
  • Most certifications need to be renewed periodically to keep them alive, active and relevant for professional growth.
  • TMI is a certifying body due to the rigorous research and testing performed then implemented into the credentialing process that allows us to award certifications.

2. I have received a certificate from attending a Talent Management training program with a local well-known training company, should I still pursue a TMI certification?
