Certification, State Board, and National Board Exams
Certain state certification and licensure boards have specific educational requirements for offerings to lead to a license or certification that is a precondition for employment in a recognized occupation. Prospective and current students must review Purdue Global’s State Licensure and Certifications site to view program and state-specific licensure information.
Unless otherwise specified, Purdue Global's offerings are not designed to meet any specific state’s licensure or certification requirements.
You are responsible for understanding the requirements of optional certification exams. Such requirements may change during the course of your studies. You are not automatically certified in any way upon completion of an offering. Although certain offerings are designed to prepare you to take various optional certification exams, Purdue Global cannot guarantee you will be eligible to take these exams or become certified. Your eligibility may depend on your work experience, completion of education and/or degree requirements, not having a criminal record, and meeting other certification requirements.
