What sets us apart from other CISM/CISD Organizations?
Standardization of training is one step in the maturation of an emerging and evolving field. Training has been provided in CISM, and numerous derivations, by various organizations throughout the world.
Another step toward the maturation of an evolving field is the development of some form of verification of relevant knowledge acquisition. The term “certification” refers to the confirmation and attestation of certain characteristics, attributes, or knowledge possessed by an individual based upon some form of external review or analysis. The OCISF Certification in CISD represents an external review of knowledge of CISM/CISD. It is fitting that such certification arises from the very organization that gave rise to BST SYSTEM formulation and its use in CISM.
The OCISF Certification in CISD is more than confirmation of mere attendance at a training class. The OCISF Certification in CISD is a confirmation that an individual has demonstrated a basic understanding of the nature and principles of CISD, as defined herein. The certification is a confirmation of knowledge and practical and applied ability. It is a certification of applied competency.
