BCSI Certified Evaluator Training – RESCHEDULED!

Rescheduled – Date TBD

SCbio is partnering with The Bioscience Core Skills Institute (BCSI) to host a live Evaluator Certification Training event in Greenville on March 15th & 16th. BCSI provides workforce skills assessment and digital micro-credentials that are valid, reliable, and trusted by the bioscience industry. We know that micro-credentials help people showcase and share skills with future employers.

How to Become a Certified Evaluator

BCSI requires that we test all certified evaluators in the skills they will be evaluating. Day One of the Training Event will be a day devoted to testing in the Essential Five Credentials:

• Numeracy
• Aseptic Technique
• Small Volume Metrology
• Lab Safety: Hazard Assessment
• SOP/Documentation

The assessment methods and objectives for the credentials can be examined on the website at , but please feel free to reach out to with any questions you might have to prepare for your testing. We also offer a study guide to those who need to brush up before the testing event. You will be awarded digital microcredentials for these skills, and the cost is $20/badge ($100 total) for the testing.

Once you have passed the assessments on Day One, you are qualified to be trained as a BCSI Certified Evaluator on Day Two. This certification comes with an additional digital badge only granted to those who have completed the training. This training certifies that you can deliver BCSI assessment services on behalf of the organization to students outside of your own training program.

• Date: March 15 & 16
• Day One will be Testing Day. Once you register, you will be sent a link to choose a testing appointment (1.5 hours) on this day. Testing is $100.
• Day Two Training Session is 8 am-3 pm with a 1-hour lunch break.
• The cost associated with training is $300.
