Why Certify?

There’s something about the word “certified” when it precedes a professional title that conveys to employers and consumers a sense of trust, credibility, knowledge and an official “stamp” of approval. Employers often include certification as a prerequisite when seeking qualified candidates to fill positions; consumers often trust only those professionals who boast credentials proving they have attained a certain level of knowledge. It is an assurance of a certain benchmark level of knowledge and skill that can be expected of a professional. Lubrication professionals themselves realize numerous benefits by holding a recognised certification, including higher salaries, better jobs, enhanced skill sets, market differentiation and community support from like-minded peers.
