Are Professional Certifications in Trouble?

January 04, 2019 5:19 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Louisiana and Missouri are two states that addressed professional licensing through legislation.

LA House Bill 748 initially contained a “certification” definition that denoted licensing.  The Louisiana State Paralegal Association (LSPA), NALA and 40 other national and global credentialing associations joined forces to change the Bill’s definition to distinguish between licensing and certification.  In particular, LSPA (a NALA Affiliated) attended the May 9, 2018 Senate Commerce Committee Meeting.  House Bill 748 was enacted without including certification in the definition.

Missouri enacted the Professional Employer Organization Act through MO House Bills 1719 & 1500 These bills do not prohibit voluntary certification programs, but do include certification definitions that may require governmental oversight.

Professional Certification Coalition was formed to address efforts to enact legislation that would undermine certifications offered by private certification organizations For further information, please see this link http://www.credentialingexcellence.org/page/professional-certification-coalition.  Thoughts?
