The professional world uses credentials as evidence of completion of specific training or education programs. Creighton University offers boot camps and test preparation classes to help prepare professionals to successfully complete tests and exams, and to provide independent validation of possession of the knowledge, skills and ability necessary to practice a particular occupation competently. The issuing institution or association often maintains a record of the credential achieved.
Professional credentials are normally valid for a limited number of years, based on the pace of change in the certified profession. They may require periodic recertification through reexamination or continuing professional development.
