PENW Examiner Training

Once you have submitted your Examiner Application, you are eligible to take the Examiner Training course. The PENW Examiner Training schedule mirrors the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program’s two-day format.

2018 Examiner Workshops are planned for Idaho, Washington and Alaska in 2018.

The Examiner Training class consists of two 8-hour days in face-to-face training, and an additional four hours of virtual training, with homework and a case study review assignment. You will be expected to have the homework done in order to attend the class. PENW Examiners and Judges are required to take examiner training each year to stay current (same as National Examiner training requirements).

Instructors: TBD
