Elevating the Licensing Profession Through Knowledge and Standards


CLP certification sets a standard that lets those active in the licensing industry know that an individual possess a certain level of knowledge about licensing and has a track record of accomplishment in the field. I was motivated to earn the CLP because the requirements for certification implied that successful candidates will possess two key assets: a track record of accomplishment in the licensing field and in-depth knowledge about the field.

To assist you in preparing for the CLP Exam, view the CLP Exam References Listed by Domain.

The Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) examination is based on current knowledge of theory and practice of licensing, a broad field comprised of several distinct sub-specialties, as reflected by the five distinct domains of subject matter expertise, not all of which may be readily familiar to each and every otherwise qualified applicant.  Licensing is a dynamic, ever-changing field in which the rapid growth of technology, changes in applicable laws and regulations and changing precedents and practices informed by case law underscore the need for all applicants, even those who have been practicing in the field for several years, to actively prepare for the examination.
