The development of a professional certification examination is a laborious and intensive process. Due to security issues, details regarding the development of specific examinations cannot be completely transparent. However, the general process for the development of certification examinations should be a public and transparent topic. While every certification examination is unique, the development process for most professional certification examinations following best practices is somewhat similar. If you have ever wanted to know about how professional certification examinations are developed, what the process involves or how professional certification examinations differ from other types of examinations, this is the session for you! Hear from the Chair and Executive Director of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBCLC) on this relevant topic.
