Texas certificate

Postby DC1987 » Tue Oct 28, 2014 9:12 pm

I have been a part of hiring a few people with a Texas certificate without IFSAC or Proboard accreditation. Lucky for those people they were POC members of our department so we knew them. That being said, you may find that a Texas (or any other) certificate without accreditation is not worth much more than the paper it is printed on.

I would recommend that if You can afford it and it take the time off, attend a school such as the JIBC, College of the Rockies or Lakeland College full time and get the full benefit from the education. I know that doesn't always work for everyone.
Good luck!
