Certification continues to be essential to providing instructional designers with the credentials and credibility that attest to the quality of their professional practice, through the experience, education, and demonstrated competencies required of instructional designers, as outlined in the ACCP-CAID Instructional Design Competencies.
By becoming a Certified ACCP-CAID Member, you signal the recognition by your peers and Canada’s professional body for instructional designers, that the quality of your work is acknowledged and attested to, as are your capabilities across the Competencies.
As a Certified Member, you have earned the right to designate yourself as a Certified Instructional Designer in Canada, and to add the post-nominal formula “ACCP-CAID Member,” increasing the visibility of your professional status and credentials.
Further, you receive a Certificate of Competency, and are entitled to use the Certified Member badge.
Since its inception, ACCP-CAID has been committed to the professional development of instructional designers in Canada. In the Events Calendar, you will find offerings from the association and links to external events that may be of interest to members. We continue to explore new avenues for offering relevant professional development opportunities and resources to our members, as part of our member consultation and listening process.
