Certified Professional assessors have undergone the assessment process and must hold the certificate themselves - hence they are familiar with the certification process. If appointed they will participate in a one-day workshop introducing assessors to the Certified Professional assessment criteria and assessment methods for dossier and interview. During the workshop they receive guidance on decision making within the scope of the scoring scheme.

At the workshop assessors establish a network for advice and support with their colleagues. It serves as a forum for discussions with representatives of the Certified Professional team.
