Behind the Mobile Electronics Certified Professional Cert
“It’s a bit of a time-consuming process to do it this way. Our Subject Matter Experts really have to learn new ways to ask questions fairly and accurately during the peer-review phases, but it’s all well worth it in the value of the credential for employers and, ultimately for consumers,” says CEA’s Cutts. It’s one of the many ways MECP has really grown into a valid, industry-specific credential.
These days, each MECP exam is updated every couple years and then heavily revised about every four to five years with this thorough psychometric validation process. Bulla adds, “Today’s MECP study guides and exams are great examples of the high quality of volunteers and processes assembled to be a part of CEA’s MECP (General) Committee and the content-focused MECP Education Committee.”
Getting Out What You Put In
All by itself, an industry-recognized certification like MECP is just a tool. Even with the high degree of tangible growth and development in the MECP ideals, at its core it’s still a tool to be leveraged in multiple ways for a retailer and supporting manufacturers. Like any specialty tool in a technician’s tool box, it only works if you use it.
