A certification body conducts examinations and awards the corresponding certificates to candidates who successfully pass these examinations. In most cases, candidates need to prepare for these exams by studying relevant subject matter or theory first.
The process of becoming recognized as an expert is not an easy one. Candidates need to study hard and demonstrate their ability to apply what they have learned by passing the relevant examinations.
Maintaining the recognized status is also not an easy task, as experts may be required to continuously update themselves on new trends and developments in their disciplines. The scope of activities within which experts are allowed to practice is also subject to regulations or rules set out by recognized authorities.
