Elevating the Licensing Profession Through Knowledge and Standards


“By leveraging the strengths of the CLP program, my experience is that companies find they can engage a broader customer base with a more deeply informed employee talent pool, and individuals find they are able to take on increased responsibility and create new career opportunities for themselves by augmenting their current expertise.”

- Dan Quirk, CLP


CLP Associate (CLP-A) Credential

The CLP-Associate (CLP-A) credential is designed for individuals who are either new to or are re-entering the licensing and technology transfer field. CLP-A is tailored to individuals who are interested in demonstrating a commitment to the licensing profession but do not have substantial experience in the fields of licensing, technology transfer or intellectual property management, and are not yet eligible to pursue the Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) certification.

CLP A Steps

Why become a CLP-A?

  • Demonstrates commitment to the profession and ongoing development of knowledge and skill.
  • Prepares applicants for success in the field.

CLP-A credential holders may apply the CLP-A application fee towards the CLP certification application fee if applying for the CLP credential within one year of the CLP-A expiration date.
