There are four elements of this process: Passing online tests, completing an application, submitting a supervisor’s recommendation, and passing a 45-minute oral exam conducted via video-conferencing. Once the three online tests, application, and recommendation are completed, they can be uploaded by clicking the Upload Completed Certificate Materials button. Dr. Brown will review the information and email you about scheduling a 1-hour consultation session for the oral exam. The standard fee for a 1-hour consult is $250. Upon passing the exam and receiving payment, Dr. Brown will send a Skills System Skills Coach Certificate of Specialized Knowledge to the individual. A certificate is active for five years. An up-date oral exam is required to extend the certificate for each five-year period.
Note: Materials to be uploaded should be in Word (.doc), PDF, JPG, PNG, or GIF formats.
