The Legal Aspects of Certification Organizations
Recorded on November 30, 2016



Safeguarding your intellectual property must include protecting tests and certifications. Otherwise, you can lose control over the quality of those credentials—and all they contribute to your organization’s revenue and reputation.

Unfortunately, credentialing is more complex than many other intellectual property assets. For example, you need an extra layer of protections to defend against competitors, uncertified individuals and even people who want to compromise the exam itself. You also must make sure your program--and the exam itself--both meet the ADA’s new legal standard.

Now, here’s expert guidance on how to do it.
