The Education workgroup started as an initiative of the IHE International Board in 2012. On 2014-11-05 it was formally set up as a subgroup of the Global Deployment Coordination Committee (GDC), see the minutes.

Users and vendors are increasingly calling out for support in implementation of IHE profiles in many ways. Consequently questions arise: What kind of help is needed? Which knowledge and skills are needed? Who can do what?

The Education workgroup explored the path to "IHE Certified Professionals" (ICP). On that path it defined business outcomes, content, methods and procedures for assessment and certification. A modular approach has emerged, from the "Basic" and "Advanced" to the "Expert" level.

A first set of concepts were captured into a 2014 white paper. From here the intention has gradually evolved towards the establishment of an operative certification scheme.

Along the way we collected literature on how to describe skills and knowledge, skills profiles, exam and certification schemes etc.

It was agreed that the "IHE Certified Professional Foundation Level" (ICP Foundation Level) had to be the first step. The "IHE Certified Professional Document Sharing" (ICP Document Sharing, working title) is an example for an advanced set of skills, building on and extending the "foundation" into a specific direction. An "ICP Imaging" may evolve as well, also as an advanced skill profile.

From this has emerged the need to implement a certification program within IHE.
