Introduction
Exemplar Global is a Personnel Certification Body (PCB) accredited by the Joint
Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) as meeting the requirements
of the international standard for personnel certification bodies, ISO/IEC 17024:2003 General
Requirements for bodies operating the certification of persons. Certification with Exemplar
Global provides certified persons with an internationally-recognized qualification.

ISO 17024 requires a PCB to define specific competencies for personnel seeking
certification and to ensure that each candidate demonstrates these competencies, both prior
to certification and as part of the ongoing surveillance and re-certification processes. For
most schemes developed by Exemplar Global, required competencies are identified as
knowledge competencies, skill competencies, personal attributes, and additional
qualifications.

The most effective method of demonstrating skill competencies is to observe the candidate
performing the required tasks, called a Skill Examination. The certification requirements for
each scheme define the specific competencies to be examined by a Skill Examiner, who is a
person certified by Exemplar Global as competent to conduct the Skill Examination and is
independent of the candidate being examined.

Exemplar Global seeks the application from personnel with the appropriate competencies to
undertake Skill Examinations for candidates in all personnel certification schemes across all
regions of the world. Exemplar Global certified Skill Examiners are considered as subcontractors to Exemplar Global for this task.
Auditors who wish to become certified by Exemplar Global should review this document and
the Personnel Certification Guide to better understand the certification requirements prior to
applying for certification.
