CPESC Certification Procedures and Standards
Article III. - In-Training Status
Section 1. Definition
Individuals who do not qualify for professional certification under the existing standards (see Article II, Section 2) may apply for CPESC In-Training status. In-Training status allows the individual increased standing, but does not allow them to take personal responsibility (to be in charge) as a CPESC. These individuals may include graduating seniors, graduate and post graduate students from accredited four year institutions, or practicing professionals who do not meet the eligibility requirements shown in Article II, Section 2.
Applicants must have a minimum of two (2) years of professional level experience or education to qualify for the CPESC In-Training exam.
In Region 10 (Australasia), CPESC In-Training status is known as CPESC Associate status.
