Requirements for becoming a LRT Certified Agency
The qualification requirements vary depending on the size of the organization that gets certified. For example, multinational agencies will get certified per country they can serve clients a LRT Certified Xpert level with.
- For solo experts, it means: LRT Certified Xpert = LRT Certified Agency
- For < 10 staff, it's, at least, TWO certified persons - one CLRTX and one LRT Certified Professional
- For > 10 staff it's, at least, TWO certified persons + 10% of the > 10 staff spread evenly on LRT Certified Xperts and LRT Certified Professionals
- Successful publishing of three complex case study/research papers, approved by Christoph C. Cemper, within three months to show consistent performance
- Successful defense of research paper with Christoph C. Cemper
- For multinational LRT Certified Agencies you need at least one LRT Certified Xpert and one LRT Certified Professional per country or more if > 10 staff per above rule to have that country agency representation be LRT Certified Agencies. Sales offices do not count as agency representation and, therefore, cannot carry the LRT Certified Agency label. We want your clients to receive local expert services.
Costs for Certification
Currently, we do not charge for support, review and education of LRT Certified Xperts, which is the prerequisite for the LRT Certified Agency. Please check the detailed requirements to become LRT Certified Professional and LRT Certified Xperts.
We reserve the right to change this in the future. Early Xperts and Agencies should remain free and still get the benefits forever.
Ongoing commitment to Quality
Keep in mind that your LRT Certified Xperts have to maintain their certification level or we will have revoked your Agency certification. Also, certifications expire after specific time without renewal.
