Certified Licensing Professionals, Inc.

Elevating the Licensing Profession Through Knowledge and Standards


Testimonials

I have been through the first round of the CLP certification exams (back in 2008), and I can testify that preparing for that was a challenging and rewarding experience. I learned a great deal and it helped me round out my licensing knowledge. I'm glad I got certified; the process and end result was worth it."

CLP Emeritus

Certified Licensing Professionals, Inc. is now accepting applications for the CLP Emeritus status – a designation that recognizes individuals who have earned and held the Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) credential, in good standing, but are now retired from full-time employment. The offering comes at the requests of, and in order to recognize, CLP certificants who have had successful careers in licensing/IP but are no longer able to maintain the credential due to their employment status.

In order to apply for CLP Emeritus status, an individual must:

  • Have held the CLP credential, in good standing, within the last three (3) years;
  • Be retired from full-time employment (Note: a limited amount of part-time work is allowable, such as independent consulting, board seats, or pro bono work); 
  • Pay a one-time fee of $150 USD; and,
  • Use the credential as “CLP Emeritus” only (Note: use of the “CLP” credential is not permitted).

Once granted, individuals must notify CLP, Inc. if they re-enter full time employment in the licensing field, and therefore no longer meet the Emeritus Status requirements. To reinstate the CLP credential, individuals are required to re-apply, pay for, and pass the CLP examination. Individuals who are granted the status are not required to earn continuing education (CE) credits.

A listing of individuals who hold the CLP Emeritus status is available on the CLP web site. Note: those holding the CLP Emeritus designation will not be listed in the online registry of current CLP certificants.
