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.
