Within NADE there are categories of membership.
Members are individuals who
have established background, ability, and experience in the field of
document examination, and who have passed the application and testing
process administered by the NADE Certification Committee.
Candidates for Certification are individuals who have passed the written test portion of the certification process, but have not yet taken the performance and/or oral testing portions of the certification process.
Professional Members are individuals who have been actively involved in providing services in the field of document examination for at least three consecutive years, who have been Associate Members of NADE for at least one year, and who have met additional professional criteria.
General Members are individuals who are working full time in the field of document examination, but who are not certified by NADE. This category is a transitional category as NADE has recently changed its levels of membership.
Associate Members are individuals who are document examiners, support the goals of the organization, and abide by the association's Code of Ethics. All document examiners join NADE as Associate Members.
Affiliates are individuals who wish to support NADE, as a student or in an otherwise affiliated capacity. Document examiners are not eligible for Affiliate status.
Only those members requesting to be listed are included in these Member Lists. For information about document examiners in your area, or to verify the membership of an individual, contact NADE President, Heidi H. Harralson.
