The BACOE Certification candidate must personally make sure that colleagues are familiar enough with the candidate’s work, and that they are willing, to serve as endorsers for the candidate.

In such cases the uniqueness of the candidates contribution to the particular Enterprise Architecture program should be emphasized.
