Occupational Licensing

Improve occupational licensing with online access and fast response times

Efficient, online occupational licensing delivers a smoother licensing process for all licensed professions

Occupational licensing provides important public safeguards while establishing clear guidelines for licensed professions. Yet too often, the process to obtain or renew an occupational license is overly complex and cumbersome. Licensees struggle to understand and follow the process for documenting education, work experience, and continuing education requirements.

Accela Occupational Licensing software simplifies the licensing process. An easy-to-use online portal makes it easy for licensees to upload documentation such as continuing education verification, reference letters, or work history. And for agency staff, automated workflows and intelligent routing eliminate manual steps and speed applications through the review process, delivering a superior customer service experience to licensed professionals.
