Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Becoming certified shows employers that you have achieved a recognized level of skills, knowledge, and experience in your field. Individuals who are new to the field can receive the Sustainability Associate certification from the International Society of Sustainability Professionals. Applicants must pass a credential exam that tests their knowledge of the field and gauges their skills and abilities. The society also offers the ISSP Certified Sustainability Professional designation for those who have a bachelor's degree, have received the Sustainability Associate certification, meet experience requirements, and pass an exam. CSOs may also receive certification in general management practices through the Institute of Certified Professional Managers.
