Certification of Health Professionals

ACSA has been a pioneer in developing certification programmes for professionals working in health organisations.

Through certification of their competencies by ACSA, health professionals from different work areas are able to display their achievements in their professional performance, according to quality standards driven by the scientific evidence available and the consensus of experts in different specialities. ACSA accompanies professional along the path of analysis and improvement that leads to certification, ensuring methodological thoroughness, technical independence, impartiality and confidentiality.

Since its inception in 2003, more than 7,000 health professionals have chosen ACSA certifications, obtaining the quality seal and having the opportunity to level up.

Specific Competencies

ACSA also has certification programmes for specific competencies that enable the performance of professional functions at a higher level of complexity or specialisation. These programmes, which are currently available only for professionals of the Andalucía Public Health System, certify the presence of complex skills for state of health assessment, decision making, diagnostic reasoning and clinical competence in order to develop the following professional activities:

How to certify?

The certification of competencies is the result of a process that allows us to verify the presence or acquisition of key competencies in actual and daily practice of a healthcare professional.

The process grants paramount importance to self-assessment. Each professional leads their own certification process: they determine their current position, decide where they are heading to and plan actions to achieve this.

Phase 1 Starting the process

Phase 1 Beginning of the Process

Professionals must apply via the online platform called ME_jora P where the entire process of certification of competencies is found. Then, ACSA will appoint a tutor to guide them.
Phase 2 Self-assessment

Phase 2 Self-assessment

Professionals provide evidence of their good practice in their performance, demonstrating a certain level of competence, current or forthcoming during the certification process.
Phase 3 Evaluation

Phase 3 Assessment

A team of qualified ACSA surveyors study self-assessment outputs, evaluating all evidence provided and determining the level of compliance with best practices displayed in their performance.
Phase 4 Certification

Phase 4 Certification

Depending on the outputs of the assessment, ACSA issues an output report and the subsequent certification of the results of the evaluation to the degree of development accomplished by the professional (in accordance with the predefined criteria and standards), i.e. Advanced, Expert or Excellent.
