Blackbaud Launches Certification Program For The Raiser’s Edge

Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB) today announced the launch of Blackbaud Certification in The Raiser’s Edge (bCRE), designed to offer nonprofit professionals an opportunity to validate Raiser’s Edge competencies and join an elite community of certified users. In addition, a new version of its flagship donor management software, The Raiser’s Edge ®, was released today featuring improvements to security and clean data management, user-friendly exports, tools for batch organization and more.

Blackbaud Certification in The Raiser’s Edge (bCRE)

Blackbaud collaborated with more than 30 organizations, fundraising leaders and consultants for over a year and a half to create a professional development program for Raiser’s Edge users. Consisting of three progressive levels — Associate, Professional, and Master — and more than 600 certification exam questions, bCRE helps create professional development opportunities by identifying knowledge gaps and offering training paths to fill those gaps. With bCRE, hiring managers and organizations can find qualified professionals with the right skillset to fill job openings.

“We’re excited to launch the new certification program at bbcon, Blackbaud’s Conference for Nonprofits, where thousands of nonprofit professionals gather to hone their skills,” said Meredith Johnson, Blackbaud’s director of educational services. “The progressive levels of certification create a clear professional development path for nonprofit professionals, helping them distinguish themselves and advance their careers while at the same time, making it easy for nonprofit hiring managers to qualify candidates.”

Rochelle Sweeney, database administrator with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, is among the inaugural group of bCRE nonprofit professionals. Sweeney pursued bCRE to demonstrate her capabilities, level of commitment and ambition. “Better trained employees means better quality data,” she said. “I will seek out Raiser’s Edge certification credentials in new hires going forward.”
