Program 1

GPC Credentialing Program




A fundamental role of most professional associations is to establish, maintain and advocate for professional standards within its industry. Many professional organizations develop credentialing standards for their members and support independent psychometrically-based certification by others. Since its inception in 1997, GPA has been dedicated to the establishment of a valid credentialing process for grant professionals.
