Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Certification can help you keep your skills up to date, and those who are certified typically find it easier to land a job than those who aren’t certified. Applicants who meet educational and experience requirements, pass a rigorous examination, and satisfy other criteria can earn the investor relations charter designation from the National Investor Relations Institute. Visit https://www.niri.org/certification for more information. The Canadian Investor Relations Institute provides the certified professional in investor relations designation. Some IR specialists earn the chartered financial analyst designation, which is administered by the CFA Institute (http://www.cfainstitute.org/programs/cfaprogram). Others are licensed as certified public accountants. The Uniform CPA Examination, which is administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, is used by all states.
