Corporate or Internal Certifications

Corporate or internal certifications are made by a corporation or organisation for internal purposes. For example, a corporation might require all new staff to undertake a half day induction training course at the commencement of employment to ensure they are aware of the company specific Occupational Health and Safety policies and procedures. After completion of this training they may be required to take a short written or verbal test to demonstrate their acquired level of knowledge and understanding. The employee then may receive a certificate that they have to provide to their immediate supervisor before they are permitted to start work.

This type of certificate is usually the simplest to develop but generally has limited portability to other corporations because the policies and procedures for OH&S vary from organisation to organisation.
