WEB19 An Update on the Professional Certification Coalition

On-demand Webinar




With support from a legal team at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, ICE and ASAE formed the Professional Certification Coalition (PCC) to promote and represent non-governmental professional certification organizations and programs and their service providers. The PCC advances the best interests of those who use or rely on professional certification—such as employers, reimbursers and the general public—as well as of individual professionals themselves who achieve professional certification status. 

The PCC has been monitoring and analyzing bills introduced in the 2019 state legislative sessions that impact private certification. The PCC has identified over 60 bills across the nation that affect private certification in four principal contexts:

  • Occupational Licensing Reform
  • Governmental versus Private Certification
  • Consumer Choice Acts (or Right to Earn a Living Acts)
  • Criminal Conviction Re-entry Legislation

Attendees will gain an understanding of the PCC's mission, current initiatives and implication on private certification and how to get involved. 

Audience: All levels of credentialing professionals
Format: On-demand Webinar
Duration: Approximately 1 hour, including Q&A
