February 14, 2012 – The IREC ISPQ Credentialing Program has released a new version of the Candidate Handbook. The IREC ISPQ Candidate Handbook serves as a primary resource for training providers who are applying for or have been awarded an IREC ISPQ credential. As the IREC ISPQ program grows, updates and improvements to the program and program documentation are made to address questions and feedback from candidates and to maintain a high quality assessment process.
Highlights of current updates, as reflected in the new Candidate Handbook, include:
- An updated Code of Ethics has been implemented and is to be signed by the candidate or an authorized representative of the candidate organization.
- Addition of an Ethics Representations and Agreement and Release Authorization document and requirement that this be signed by the candidate or an authorized representative of the candidate organization.
- Replacement of the IREC ISPQ Program Compliance and Complaint Procedure with two distinct procedures: the IREC ISPQ Ethics Case Procedure, and IREC ISPQ Procedures to Resolve Challenges and Complaints Related to Credentialing Eligibility and Irregularities.
- New language indicating that basic information about applicants, including name, organization name and website, will be published on the IREC website.
