Elevating the Licensing Profession Through Knowledge and Standards


 
Testimonials

CLP certification is often recognized as a benchmark in the course of a licensing career.  It communicates that an individual has depth of knowledge in intellectual property and licensing.  For this reason, it serves as a differentiator in the field.  That value is sometimes most immediately recognized by individuals just starting out in a licensing career path, as it may provide competitive advantage when applying for jobs, or looking to advance in an existing role."
