New Critical Thinking Certification Give Students an Advantage in College and Job Applications
Atlanta, GA—April 24, 2015---Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute (Core Edge) recently developed the IBAR Critical Thinking Method (IBAR) certification to help students bolster their college and job applications in response to corporate employers’ desire to see more college graduates and new employees become effective critical thinkers and problem solvers. According to St. Olaf Institutional Research & Evaluation website, “Eighty-one percent of employers say students should place more emphasis on developing critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills; 63% say they should place more emphasis on developing quantitative reasoning skills.” IBAR is a hybrid critical thinking method influenced by the legal analysis used in American law schools and the qualitative and quantitative research methods used in graduate school programs. Core Edge introduced Atlanta Public School’s GED students to IBAR and credits this method for improving critical thinking, research and writing skills.
Core Edge’s founder and developer of IBAR Edward Brown says, “We decided that encouraging students to earn a Certificate of Training in critical thinking for their college and job applications would give them an edge in the marketplace. We certify students so that they can use the certificate as documented proof that they can diagnose and solve problems, which is a prerequisite for high-level positions. If two students have equal qualifications, the student who is a certified critical thinker will most likely be selected by colleges as well as secure desired employment.”
IBAR will be marketed to corporations and educational institutions for classroom and online education consisting of seven sessions (one hour each) for critical thinking certification.
Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute is an applied research and Internet marketing company that creates digital products and services to solve problems in niche markets. Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute was founded in Atlanta in 2002.
