The Florida Certification Board  Thursday - April 17, 2014
Providing protection by ensuring quality in the delivery of treatment, prevention, & intervention services to Florida's citizens.


Certification is a form of credentialing, a voluntary regulation of a specialty within a profession. It is the process by which a non-government organization grants recognition to persons who have met certain standards defined by that organization. Certification does have limitations: it does not guarantee quality and integrity by itself. It does, however, unite and set direction for professional growth.

Purpose of Certification

The purpose of certification is to:

  1. Assure the public a minimum level of competency for quality service by certified professionals.
  2. Give professional recognition through a process which examines demonstrated work competencies.
  3. Assure an opportunity for ongoing professional development .
  4. Promote professional and ethical practice by enforcing adherence to a Code of Ethics.
