Explanations

  • The assessor certification covers a complete calendar year. It is the responsibility of the assessor to apply for renewal during this period. In order to avoid bottlenecks and gaps, intacsTM has defined a buffer period during the first quart of the following year. This allows assessors, which are late in extending their certification to continue their buisiness for at least three months. Details are defined in the according procedure (see download area in Community Menue). Be aware, that only an application for re(certification) in time will make sure, that a continuous certification is granted.
  • If an assessor is certified he might want to extend his scope of recognition to an additional field, i.e. if an assessor is certified within the scope of Automotive SPICE®, he might want to be recognized as a certified assessor in the field of finance as well. In this case he applies for a secondary certification with a formless request and a copy of his existing certificate. The certification bodies will exchange necessary data to allow evaluation and then issue a second certifcate according to the request (only if certification criteria a met).
  • For organizations, who want to qualify and maintain a qualification program for a certain amout of assessors, corporate bundles are available. See details in the according definitions.
  • The exam fees cover participation in an exam, which is related to one or a group of Process Assessment Models. The fee depends on the course scope, where the exam is connected to.
  • Training Organizations may get accredited for one or more courses, fees apply per course. Only certified instructors, qualified to give selected courses, shall perform trainings. Trainings given by instructors without having a certification and qualification for that cours, will not grant qualification to the participants, no matter if they pass exam or not.
