Get Certified

Credentialed certified employment support professionals, or CESP™ holders, are distinguished from their colleagues. CESP™ certification proclaims the proficiency of skills and knowledge needed to carry out the roles and responsibilities of an employment support professional. An objective, third party validates that CESP™ holders have passed a nationally accepted exam, thereby meeting or exceeding professional competency standards.

What Training Programs Fail to Offer

Training programs offer a certificate of attendance or completion when an individual participates in coursework, not a credential. Some training programs may require individuals to pass a content-driven exam. These exams are not based on national standardized competencies and are not administered by an independent professional organization. A training certificate demonstrates that at a single point in time an individual completed a course. It does not necessarily show that a person has the skills and knowledge to perform all of the requirements of a particular job.
