About Certificate Programs

Certificates of proficiency are designed to measure your knowledge of essential skills or information. To receive a certificate, take the NewsU courses associated with that certificate program and then successfully complete the online assessment for each course. Once you've passed all the assessments, you will receive your certificate from Poynter's NewsU.

The World Vision-Poynter Certificate for Emergency Communications is for those who want to improve their skills for the challenges of telling powerful, people-focused stories in the fast-breaking news environment of man-made and natural disasters, utilizing multiple storytelling platforms.

Complete each of the courses in this certificate program, then take the assessments for each one. Questions from each assessment will cover content from each course. You'll have three chances to pass each assessment.

Unlike traditional quizzes and activities from Poynter's NewsU, these assessments won't tell you the answers. So make sure you study hard when you take the courses.
