WHY CERTIFICATION IS IMPORTANT AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN

The Equine Assisted Learning Certification Course ensures the technical competence of their trained professional facilitators. Certification exams go beyond training by providing an objective measurement of a facilitator's knowledge and skills. The Equine Assisted Learning Certification Course is designed to establish standards for developing qualified facilitators.

As defined by the Global Certification Institute: Certification refers to the confirmation of certain characteristics of a person, organization or object. This confirmation is often, but not always, provided by some form of external review, education or assessment.  One of the most common types of certification in modern society is professional certification, where a person is certified as being able to competently complete a job or task, usually by the passing of an examination. The purpose of any professional certification is to produce official and public recognition of an individual's competencies and capabilities in a professional subject area.
 

WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF CERTIFICATION?
  1. To raise the professional standards and improve the practice of cost engineering by giving special recognition by their peers to those who, in fulfilling prescribed standards of performance and conduct, have demonstrated and maintained a high level of competence and ethical practices.

  2. To identify for employers, clients and the public persons with a broad knowledge of cost engineering, and capability to professionally apply the principals of total cost management.

  3. To establish a program with the goal of continuous improvement for individuals cost engineering skills and professional development.

  4. To clarify the skills, knowledge and standards of conduct for the practice of cost engineering.
     

TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The Taxonomy of Educational Objectives often called Bloom's Taxonomy, is a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives).  Bloom's Taxonomy divides educational objectives into three "domains:" Affective, Psychomotor, and Cognitive.

Like other taxonomies, Bloom's is hierarchical; meaning that learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels (Orlich, et al. 2004). A goal of Bloom's Taxonomy is to motivate educators to focus on all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education.

Most references to the Bloom's Taxonomy only notice the Cognitive domain. There is also a far less referred, revised version of the Taxonomy, published in 2001 under the name of "A Taxonomy for Learning, Teaching, and Assessing", eds. Anderson, Lorin W., Krathwohl, David R., Airasian, Peter W., Cruikshank, Kathleen A., Mayer, Richard E., Pintrich, Paul R., Raths, James and Wittrock, Merlin C. (philter, GCI Pty. Ltd. )
