The Rutgers Center on Public Security offers this credentialing program to set a basic standard of excellence for people using Risk Terrain Modeling (RTM). It identifies you as a skilled spatial risk analyst and problem-solver. It may make you more marketable and can be a valuable addition to your resume.
Eligibility: You must have an active subscription to the RTMDx software, or be an Authorized User of an active subscription, and you should have completed an RCPS-approved training program, such as RTM Training Online.
Qualifications: Applicants for certification must demonstrate a more-than-basic level of proficiency in Risk Terrain Modeling methods and practical implications of RTM. This may be achieved by (1) submitting an "industry standard" product demonstrating your application of RTM to a topic of interest and (2) correctly answering 3 questions relating to content from the recommended readings of RCPS's RTM Training Online.
How to Apply: Applications are accepted at anytime. To apply for certification, email RCPS at firstname.lastname@example.org (include your full name, mailing address, phone number, email address, work/employer affiliation, and a brief sentence describing your line of work/job sector). Include an attachment or link to your independently produced product demonstrating your proficiency in RTM. The RCPS certification committee will review these materials and, if they meet the qualifying standards, will send you 3 questions to be answered in writing. Certificates will be awarded to people who pass both parts of the certification process.
How to Renew: Certifications are valid for 2 years. To be eligible for renewal, you must have an active subscription to the RTMDx software, or be an Authorized User of an active subscription. To renew: (1) submit proof of eligibility (e.g. RTMDx user name) and (2) a product demonstrating your application of RTM to a topic of interest to you that was completed after your last certification date and within the past 24 months. Email these items to RCPS at email@example.com.
