THE VETIVER NETWORK

CERTIFICATE OF TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE

 

 

The purpose of the "Certification of Technical Excellence" certificates is twofold:
(1) Recognition of high quality work and demonstration of a high level of knowledge in specific areas of the Vetiver System technology; and
(2 ) to make it easier for potential clients to know what area of excellence the certified person has
actually achieved and has capability.
Note: An example of a certificate can be found here.

Example of Vetiver System Technical Certification from Indonesia. A very nice example of a very comprehensive vetiver program that has impacted on community, commerce, tourism, and infrastructure

This is a good example and addendum of the type of proof required for Vetiver System Technical Certification - in this case Class 2 was awarded - plant propagation and slope stabilization. Permaculturists should be interested in the addendum that includes composting vetiver roots.

The details relating to Certificates of Technical Excellence are in the attached document. You should go to this document if you wish to apply for certification. To apply for a Certificate of Excellence you should write to your local Vetiver Network coordinator or directly to TVN and should submit evidence to prove your case (written and photographic as set out in the Guide line document).

DISCLAIMER:

1. Certification by TVNI is not a substitute for a potential employer or contractor carrying out their own due diligence of prior work and experience of the individual or company certified.
2. TVNI certifies based strictly on technical criteria. Certification does not imply anything regarding the certified individual's business or business practices.
3. TVNI certifies based on its direct knowledge of the experience and quality of work or based on documentation provided to TVNI by the individual requesting certification. In the latter case, TVNI makes its best attempt to carry out due diligence and verify the documentation prior to certification, but TVNI cannot fully guarantee the complete veracity of the information received. TVNI can be contacted directly to determine if an individual or companies certification is based on TVNI's direct knowledge or documentation provided by the individual requesting certification.
