Amendments to the Regulations
The Certification Regulations were reorganized for simplicity and clarity. The Honour Specialist Program and the Three Session Specialist Program were combined into one Academic Chart.
This process involved no changes to the requirements for upgrading. The new Regulations can be found in our Policies and Procedures (PDF), page 55 (CERT Reg. 16) to page 58 (CERT Reg. 19).
