Certification

The requirement to undergo professional development and certification has long played a crucial role in such professions as Law, Medicine, Insurance and Information Technology. Professional certifications earned through accredited testing are one of the best ways to assess an individual’s level of knowledge, skill and experience. Furthermore, professional societies use certification to benchmark and improve the quality and relevance of a profession, employers seek out credentialed professionals, and government agencies and licensing bodies often mandate certification to practice.

Why Certify?

In the nuclear industry, certifications are often required of individuals employed in Nuclear Safety; until now, however, the same has not been true of Nuclear Security. Thanks to the WINS Academy and its certification programme, this situation is beginning to change.

This gift basket underscores the importance of the World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) and the certified training courses provided by the WINS Academy for managers and personnel involved in nuclear security. Along with other States that have provided support to the Academy, Canada encourages the further expansion of the WINS academy's certification program.
