Certified Licensing Professionals, Inc.

Elevating the Licensing Profession Through Knowledge and Standards


Testimonials

I earned the CLP because it provides knowledge that I can use in my various professional responsibilities, including developing a patenting strategy, a copyright strategy and negotiating license agreements.  I would recommend earning the CLP distinction to anyone currently working in or aspiring to work in the licensing industry.

What is CLP?

CLP, Inc., a separately incorporated 501(c)(6) organization, administers the Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) exam and program. The Board of Governors includes representatives from industry organizations such as LES, AUTM, and BIO.

CLP History

The Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) program was launched in 2008 to recognize professionals who have demonstrated their experience and proficiency in the licensing and commercialization of intellectual property. The program was developed as an initiative of the Licensing Executives Society (USA and Canada).  

A quality certification program is not developed overnight. It took multiple years and dedicated volunteers to develop the program.  These volunteers are industry experts who reviewed job analysis data to determine the tasks necessary to perform the job, created an exam content outline, developed items (or exam questions), assembled the first form of the exam, and created the organizational structure of the program, to name only a few of their charges.

There are currently more than 850 practicing CLP designees worldwide.
