Our certification programs are standardized procedures established for becoming evidence-based as organizations (CEBO), and as practitioners (CEBP). The programs recognize abilities and accomplishments agencies and their staff of professionals 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 evidence-based frameworks. In the end, their efforts falter and fade away when funding is exhausted, or the "in-house expert" employee moves on. Many organizations fall into this category.
On the other hand, you have installations that build staff skills and are also integrated within organizational frameworks that are evidence-based. These typically thrive, have an engaged staff, and continue to serve clients successfully for very many years into the future.
