Licensing & Accreditation

Licensure and accreditation are an important phase to establishing validity of skills and services.  The process involves a governmental agency or a peer group permitting time-limited approval to an individual or entity to engage in a given profession after confirming predetermined criteria such as education, skill assessment, and experience have been met.
