Standards & Certification

Why do standards and certification matter? Why so many different certification options and levels?

Why Do Standards &  Certification Matter?

Standards facilitate fair trade between countries, they make development and implementation of services and products efficient and safer, spread innovations, help in safeguarding consumers from substandard services and products and provide solutions to problems.

Standards benefit businesses because suppliers offer products and services that have meet international specifications. Customers are given a wide choice; standards also help them because they benefit from completion therefore getting goods and services at a lower price.

Conformity of services and goods to standards gives consumers assurance that the products are consistent, valid, reliable, quality and safe.

They help developing countries know the standards services and goods are supposed to meet and where to invest their resources.

International standards contribute to quality of life for people in general because they ensure that products and services are of a certain standard.

See the section on Certification Roadmaps to help you determine what certifications are right for specific job needs or career goals.

Each CRPGP certification is designed to stand on its own, and represents a certified individual's mastery of a particular set of knowledge and skills.

There is no particular "order" in which CRPGP certifications must be earned; though we recommend that candidates master lower level concepts before moving on to more advanced topics.

CRPGP certifications align with individual RPG formats and industries' job based disciplines.

RPG Therapeutics LLC Oversight of the CRPGP

Currently RPG Therapeutics LLC sets the Certification Standards which serve as the governing policies and procedures for all certification services and credentialing processes for the CRPGP and related specialties. We are looking into the possibilities for creating an independent certification body, something like the Council for Role-Playing Game Certification (CRPGC) possibly. But pending formation of such an organization, RPG Therapeutics LLC will act accordingly.

All candidates for CRPGP certification and established CRPGP certificants are responsible for reading and understanding the CRPGP Certification Standards. The complete CRPGP Certification Standards in English are comprised of a number of sections, each containing information regarding specific areas of standards and application processes. These standards are currently only available in English.

RPG Therapeutics LLC may deny certification or recertification, revoke certification or recertification, or issue other sanctions when a candidate does not comply with any of the CRPGP Certification Standards. All alleged violations of the CRPGP Certification Standards must be submitted in writing to RPG Therapeutics LLC in a timely manner.

The CRPGP Certification Standards are updated periodically. Candidates are responsible for making sure they have the most current information and that they meet the current standards when they apply for certification. Please read the CRPGP Certification Standards thoroughly. If you have any questions about the CRPGP certification process or the information contained in the CRPGP Certification Standards, please contact RPG Therapeutics LLC through our Contact Information.
