What's the best way to show you're a seasoned and qualified
professional? Certification and accredication can help you impress
employers that need your expertise. Many specialized jobs in oil
and gas may offer certification or accreditation programs, allowing
the worker to demonstrate specialization and competence in their
profession. Certification can be achieved through a governing body,
professional association or industry organization.
The process of achieving certification usually involves
completion of courses, exams, work experience and membership with a
related professional association. An individual that has achieved
certification in their profession shows they have met standards of
excellence and adhere to codes of conduct in their field.
Certification and accreditation for some occupations might be
mandatory, while others may be voluntary. Certain professional
designations must be renewed on a regular basis, to ensure you are
keeping up with advances in the industry. Jobs in engineering, geology, and geophysicists, might
also require additional licenses to practice legally in
Canada. Technician and technologists jobs often
require certification in a number of occupations.
Achieving certification can be challenging, but could also lead
to promotions into senior positions and a better paycheck!
