Our certification programs are standardized procedures established for certification, as an evidence-based practitioner (CEBP), in evidence-based leadership (CEBL), and as an evidence-based organization organization or program (CEBO). The programs recognize abilities and accomplishments agencies and their staff demonstrate in the application of evidence-based approaches in work they do.
Well-meaning organizations adopt model programs and practices in their work. While that is important, they often do not account for other similarly essential frameworks in staff skills and the organizations' operations. In the end, their efforts falter and discontinue when funding is exhausted, or the "in-house resident expert" employee moves on!
It is crucial to build staff and leadership capacity, as well as operations that are evidence-based. Such endeavors thrive, have an engaged staff, and continue to serve clients successfully for very many years into the future.
