The Transfer Institute as a certification institute

The Transfer Institute Certified Professional credential has been designed by experienced to help identify skilled technology innovation practitioners.

The Transfer Institute works to benefit the profession, remove barriers to professional development, create globally recognizable skills standards, improve professional performance, as well as to enable anyone involved in the sector to participate in its development.

This is due to the absence of clear benchmarks and global regulations, the lack of professional development opportunities, as well as the complexity of access to existing options (need for membership, credit-hours system, classroom-based training, etc.), mainly for new professionals who are far away from the leading global nodes in science, technology and innovation.

A pool of experts in the subject matter have revised the online professional certification, certification requirements, procedures, and supplementary online course.

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.
