Elevating the Licensing Profession Through Knowledge and Standards


“I became a CLP to affirm and certify that I had the knowledge and expertise of a licensing professional.  I maintain my credential as I work in the field, it motivates me to continue to add to my knowledge, and the credential is recognized by external parties as well as my peers.

As a volunteer on the Standards, Admissions, and Recertification (SAR) committee, I benefit from discovering the depth and breadth of CLPs involved and engaged in a diversity of continuing education activities that continue to contribute to our profession.“
