The Board of Certification for Certified Organizational Ombudsman Practitioners (Board of Certification) was established in 2009 for the purpose of awarding the Certified Organizational Ombudsman Practitioner® or CO-OP® credential. The Board of Certification, a division of the International Ombudsman Association (IOA), manages all matters related to certification and recertification through its Board of Directors, committees and task forces. Its purpose is to promote, examine and maintain standards for the advancement of organizational ombudsmanry. It does so by identifying -- for organizational ombudsman practitioners, their organizations, and the public -- those organizational ombudsmen who have voluntarily sought and obtained certification.
