ISSP Certified Professionals Complete Second Beta Test

The International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) has announced the names of the individuals who passed the second round of beta testing for the new ISSP Sustainability Associate Certification. With this update, the number of ISSP certified professionals continues to grow!

This list of 109 individuals now brings the total number of ISSP certified professionals to 244, spanning both the entry level ISSP Sustainability Associate (ISSP-SA) level and the advanced ISSP Certified Sustainability Professional (ISSP-CSP) level.

All candidates are required to pass the ISSP Sustainability Associate exam before proceeding to the ISSP Certified Sustainability Professional exam. Like with the LEED program, candidates may replace their ISSP-SA with the ISSP-CSP designation once they have earned it. That being said, of the 244 credential holders, 53 have went on to pass the ISSP-CSP exam.

The list of names below identifies the credential holders from the second beta exam for ISSP-SA. There will not be a second beta exam for ISSP-CSP. If these newly appointed ISSP-SA credential holders choose to upgrade to ISSP-CSP, they will have to wait until the official launch of the ISSP certification program. This launch is slated for the 4th quarter of 2016.

Next Steps

Currently, ISSP is working on launching its ISSP Education Partners program as well as an ISSP study guide. Once these items have been resolved, there will be a clearer path toward the official launch of the certification program. Everblue staff have been working with the ISSP team, contributing test questions and guidance. We look forward to joining the ISSP Education Partners program and launching an ISSP Exam Prep in a few months. The goal, of course, will be to make this training available around the same time that the ISSP exams become available.

Without further adieu, let’s honor those who passed the second beta of the ISSP Sustainability Associate exam. I’m very excited to see some former Everblue students among this list as well as an administrator from my alma mater at Elon University!

This will be our last posting of ISSP credential holders, as we expect this list to grow exponentially when the certification program officially launches! Click here to see our post on 1st round ISSP-SA credential holders and also click here for ISSP-CSP credential holders.
