Introduction

The Certified Remote Working Professional training with embedded certification  teaches and assesses the key set of fundamental competencies for aspiring or practicing Remote Working Professionals. Integrating the credentials exam within the course experience measures the learner’s understanding of the key concepts of the training. The examinee must demonstrate basic knowledge of remote workplace concepts, ethics, scheduling, distractions, motivation, communications, conflict resolution, cross cultural issues, security, privacy, workspace safety, web meeting etiquette, and work-life balance. The skills and knowledge measured in this course are derived from an industry-wide and worldwide job task analysis that was validated through a survey of professionals. The intent is to certify individuals in a baseline body of knowledge that is identified and accepted as the baseline or foundation for any remote working professional in any industry. 

The examinees complete the assessment concurrently to the training. The certification course is currently only available in English and only available online.
