  • LPHA reported need to show progress; certification is one way to do this
  • Certification adds value to activities that may be undertaken anyway
  • Agency can demonstrate national level acknowledgement/attainment of a standard
pilot process
Pilot Process
  • Select ten LPHA pilots by Nov. 1, 2002
  • “Representative” group of LPHAs (population size, region, state system)
  • Implement trainings and planning process, provide feedback
  • Taking competencies and developing trainings nationwide is a large undertaking
  • Many training programs out there, lots of workforce activity (local planning, state programs, national programs, academic centers)
  • Certification process is simultaneously breaking new ground and raising old issues
  • Work is progressing, but the program is still a “work in progress”
