If you hold a certification through the NPMA we need your help!

To ensure the highest quality Certification program and as a part of the accreditation process, a Job Task Analysis (JTA) Survey will be coming to you via email, for your important feedback. The purpose of the JTA is to identify and validate the knowledge, skills and abilities required to perform tasks involved with the profession of Asset Management.

Why is your participation important? The feedback provided on this survey serves as a tool used to validate and keep our certification program current. This is why your participation is vital to us.

This process will also move us toward NPMA’s certification program receiving accreditation through NCCA (National Commission for Certifying Agencies).

This project will be managed by Alpine Testing Solutions, Inc., a company with experts in the field of certification. Alpine will have psychometricians available to evaluate our Certification Program. Alpine will be sending out the Survey on or about April 11, 2016. Thank you in advance for your participation. Take this opportunity to make your voice heard!
