Our Committees

PECB has established a number of committees comprised of experts from all around the world. Each committee has a dedicated purpose, mission, and rationale. The General Scheme Committee involves a group of international high-level professionals who continuously review and enhance the PECB certification schemes and certificate programs. The committee members are carefully chosen to be independent and industry experts with rich experience and track record.

The Technical Scheme Committees involve a group of international high-level professionals, specifically engaged in reviewing exams and Job Task Analysis, due to their specific expertise, related to each personnel certification scheme or certificate program. Different from the General Scheme Committee, there are multiple Technical Scheme Committees for main portfolios that PECB provides services as they specialize in their fields.

At the same time, the Impartiality and Certification Appeal Committee is comprised of external specialists who are responsible to conduct impartiality reviews related to a certified person or decision related to the certification process, including certification complaints, and handling certification appeals as per the Complaints and Appeals Policy.

The Training Courses Review Committee gathers from all around the world to discuss, review, and improve the PECB Training Courses. This committee, jointly with the Training Development Department takes important decision with regard to the actions to be taken for the PECB training materials.
