This certification is for unregulated workers employed in diabetes programs and services at community or regional/provincial level. Program coordinators may have a range of functions within these programs and services, but this professional certification requires a broad array of knowledge and skills, focused on serving the various needs of Indigenous individuals, families and communities affected by diabetes.
The ICBOC Horizontal Laddering Certification System allows Certified Indigenous Diabetes Program Coordinators to switch their certification to that of another certification at an equivalent level. Existing experience, knowledge and skills will be transferred and counted towards the new certification, so that an applicant does not have to start from scratch to obtain the new certification.
The ICBOC Vertical Laddering Certification System allows Certified Indigenous Diabetes Program Coordinators to upgrade their certification to another higher certification, when they meet the work experience standards and training/education requirements for that certification level. This can be achieved over time by the accumulation of training hours and years of practice acquired through recertification. The next higher level of certification for Diabetes Program Coordinator is the Team Leader in Diabetes Services.
