What certification means
For consumers, certification is basically an issue of trust. People who use Rehabilitation health services want to have confidence in that those services are safe and consistent in high quality. People understand that there are risks associated with using the health system, but they want those risks minimized. Certification is the process which validates, based upon predetermined standards, an individual’s qualifications and level of knowledge to practice in Rehabilitation health support. Becoming certified may offer opportunities to gain recognition from colleagues and patients, job opportunities, or even increased privileges or promotion.
