How much studying/preparation is required?
Most participants spend a minimum of 8-12 weeks to prepare for the knowledge exam and at least 40 hours to prepare for the work product submission, in addition to the time it takes to complete the project itself.
What makes up the Knowledge Exam and Work Product?
150 multiple choice questions on ten Areas of Expertise (AOE), deemed critical for workplace learning and performance professionals. For scoring purposes some areas are weighted more than others.
