Why the Transfer Institute as a certification institute?
The Transfer Institute Certified Professional credential has been designed by experienced industry practitioners to help identify individuals with the essential talent to create a knowledge-based society.
The Transfer Institute works for the benefit of the profession, to remove barriers to professional development, to create globally recognizable standards in different areas of knowledge, to improve professional performance as well as to enable anyone involved in the sector to participate in its development.
This is all due to the absence of clear benchmarks and global regulations of use, the lack of professional development opportunities, as well as the complexity of access to existing options (need for membership, credit system, classroom-based training, etc.), mainly for new professionals who are far away from the leading global nodes in science, technology and innovation.
A growing community of professionals around the world, which you can be a part of, functions as an independent advisory body to assess the credentials awarded by The Transfer Institute, in order to monitor and uphold quality standards in line with the opinion of the profession, developments within the sector, and professional ethics.
