You may register to become an examiner at any time. All examiners must participate in Examiner Training to be considered for an examiner team. First time examiners MUST participate in New Examiner Training prior to Examiner Training. Any examiner that has not served on a team within the last two years is highly encouraged to participate in New Examiner training prior to Examiner Training.
New Examiner Training is a 20-hour experience that combines on demand training modules with online training sessions using a case study. Examiners learn the steps in the RMPEx examiner process; how to read an application; how to evaluate an organization using the Baldrige PE Scoring System; how to use the RMPEx examiner tools; and how to provide non-prescriptive feedback in the form of organizational strengths and opportunities for improvement. All live sessions are led by nationally recognized Baldrige experts and designed to deliver collaborative learning with your peers.
All returning examiners signing up for Examiner Training will be assigned to a team evaluating Applicants at the Timberline or Peak Levels. All teams are led by experienced examiners. Examiner Training is a refresher course that utilizes on demand videos, just-in-time sessions, and each team’s live assigned application to jump start each team’s work. Training reviews changes to the RMPEx examiner process and changes to the Baldrige PE Framework criteria; it also refreshes the examiner on the Baldrige PE Scoring System.
