OUR STRATEGIC PARTNERS
Strategic Partners for Applied Professional Learning Diploma and Certificate Programs
OCDT, has established a consortium of Applied Professional Learning Partners to deliver applied professional diploma and certificate programs to the highest standards.
- The Strategic Learning Alliance (SLA).
- Wainwright Global Institute of Professional Coaching (WGI)
Our Value Proposition
The Strategic Learning Alliance administers 3rd party credentials for learning-based certification programs using a blend of subject matter expert guidelines for business performance (Board of Advisors standards) as well as academic merits to warrant conferral of AASCB (top 15% schools of business) credits for learning-based certifications (SLA Credentialing Committee standards). These standards are researched, tested, and measured in partnership with the Peak-Learning Institute of Applied Learning Certification.
Professionalism: Effectively Applied Knowledge (PEAK™) Theory
The requirements for certification are based on an immersion-examination model using Professionalism: Effectively Applied Knowledge (PEAK™) Theory as established by the Professionalism: Effectively Applied Knowledge (PEAK™) Institute in accordance with AASCB academic accreditation performance and SLA Board of Advisor regulations of performance.
Measurement of Success
- Ability to learn and test at the top 20% of the current professional level in a given field;
- Ability to demonstrate applied learning through observed measurement to warrant a top 20% of AASCB academic performance;
- Complete competencies with scores high-enough to demonstrate predictive ability to advance both professionally and academically within a specific career track.
Unlike other certifications that rely only on subject matter content and examination to ensure recipients demonstrate tested knowledge to be considered a top 20% performer, the SLA also requires a learning experience and performance based on the highest academic accreditation standards (courses must meet AASCB standards to be approved as an SLA program). This means that SLA candidates must meet tested, observed, and applied metrics to successfully earn certification through a learning program and simulated exam experience. The result is that candidates certified by the SLA have a 94% likelihood of professional success within a field (moving from non-exempt to exempt roles) and perform within the top 20% of a graduate-level course.
