The Board for Certification of Genealogists is launching a pilot program that divides the application process for earning the Certified Genealogist credential into three parts. The pilot program does not change portfolio elements, standards, or rubrics, only the submission timing. This change aims to make the process more approachable and encourage more preliminary applicants to submit portfolios while remaining just as rigorous.
Applicants can opt in to the pilot program from 1 March 2024 to 31 December 2024 by submitting the Part 2 Pilot Program Application with the required elements and applicable fee within the pilot program window. There is no limit to the number of participants in the pilot program, and it is open to anyone, including those currently on the clock or those who are not yet on the clock.
