Greetings from the American Board of Criminalistics,
With the recent addition of the Biological Evidence Screening (BIO) and Forensic DNA (DNA) certification examinations, field testing of the Foundational Knowledge Exam (FKE), and continuing development of future examinations in our quest for ISO 17024 Accreditation, we are looking to expand the Certification Examination Management Groups (CEMGs) for these and other certification examinations.
Do you think you might be interested in test development and management of certification examinations? Do you have a knack for writing test questions that assess the competency of a forensic scientist? We are seeking scientific experts with the knowledge, skills, and abilities within a given specialty, or other areas that may be related to a specific discipline, to help us develop and maintain certification examinations. As a CEMG member, you will be asked to generate, review, and evaluate test questions on an ongoing basis as needed. If selected, you will work under the guidance of the Examination Coordinator throughout the year. CEMG members should expect to dedicate two (2) hours per month to ABC activities on average.
CEMG members will be chosen to represent broad demographical and geographical areas across the forensic science community. Members of ABC membership organizations and ABC certificate holders are preferred, and the latter will receive one (1) point towards recertification annually.
Please take a moment to fill out the survey and upload your Statement of Qualifications or Curriculum Vitae via this link: Prospective CEMG Member Survey
We look forward to working with you!
Audra Curry Yovanovich
Chair, Examination Committee
