Feedback on this doc is welcomed on the WAA Blog post for the document; you do not have to be a WAA member to leave a comment. An overview of the Certification Test project and projected timeline info are provided here.
We’re hoping to do a trial run of the Certification Test at the eMetrics Optimization Summit this fall in DC to uncover problems and issues, with actual testing to begin some time in 2009.
Many thanks to the more than 60 WAA member volunteers who worked on the various projects that have resulted in this document, including the development of the WAA / UBC Courses. You don’t have to take the Courses to sit for the Certification Test, but all the Knowledge Required to pass the Certification Test is covered in the 4 WAA / UBC Courses.
Any comments or questions about the document itself (what is or is not included, for example) or the WAA Certification in general should be posted to the WAA blog rather than here.
Frankly, I’m relieved this document has finally been published!
