Certifications acknowledge an individual's effort to achieve a professional level of competency in the industry. While individuals' motives may vary, there are numerous reasons for seeking certification including personal and professional satisfaction, employer recognition and financial gain.

Today is the perfect time to advance your level of certification. Studies show that advanced certification leads to greater career flexibility, greater income and better job satisfaction. So don't delay, log into your DRI account and apply today! If you have any questions about upgrading your certification level or want to discuss options for your entire team (i.e. group training), call +1-866-542-3744.

Certification is a two-part process: verification of knowledge and confirmation of experience. This includes:

  1. The receipt of a passing grade to verify a candidate's knowledge of the subject matter.
  2. An application which may be required to confirm the experience needed for a DRI International certification. This will be reviewed by the Commission.
