Professionals asked to serve on the boards of for-profit and non-profit organizations are responsible for overseeing these organizations’ executive pay packages. Under intermediate sanctions, board members of tax-exempt organizations who make decisions about executive compensation are required to be knowledgeable about compensation, in order to make informed decisions about reasonable compensation. Sarbanes-Oxley also requires board members of for-profit companies to be knowledgeable about compensation in making decisions about executive compensation. By completing this series of one-hour online courses, these board members can earn a credential in compensation analysis.
DLC Compensation Committee courses teach:
Board members who have earned a Compensation Committee Certification (CCC) will feel more comfortable in making executive compensation decisions because they have gained a knowledge base regarding executive pay planning. This short and convenient certification course can be completed at an individual board member's own pace from the convenience of their workplace.
Compensation committee members can choose to focus on for-profit or non-profit executive pay planning by selecting courses from one of two tracks.
To earn a CCC you must complete the 5 courses listed in the for-profit series above or the 5 courses listed in the non-profit series. In addition, you must earn 5 additional CCC credits by passing CCC exams for five of the elective courses listed below.
Board members must choose five elective courses from this list.
To get started, order the CCC. The cost is $399. Then, go to your Training History and begin taking the five required courses and five elective courses.
You can complete these CCC courses at your own pace, starting and stopping each course at will, and later returning to the page you left off on by clicking the Page Index link in the left-hand course navigation. Once you have read through a course's material and completed any interactive exercises, either click the Final Exam button at the end of the course or the link in the left-hand navigation to take an exam for CCC credit.
