SkillPointe launches LicensePointe™ to simplify licensing and certification requirements in skilled careers
Exclusive Tool Brings Much-Needed Clarity to Troubled State Professional Regulations
ATLANTE, February 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SkillPointe, the number one resource for career guidance, training, scholarships and top local jobs that don’t require a college degree, today launched LicensePointe™a one-of-a-kind solution to help simplify complex licensing and professional certification regulations related to skilled careers in different states and industries.
The most desirable careers in healthcare, education, construction, manufacturing, and other high-growth industries require state licensing or certification before a job seeker can start working in their state, but states have different education or experience requirements, exams, fees, and application forms…making the career discovery and job search process overwhelming for job seekers and career changers who are new to their field.
“Licenses and certifications are often required in many high-paying skilled professions, but even if they are not required, we see huge benefits in obtaining a license or certification,” said James Franchi, CEO of SkillPointe. “Unemployment rates are much lower for licensed professionals, and their salaries are also higher. Licenses and certifications are essential for successful growth in skilled careers.”
LicensePointe™ brings much-needed clarity to a very complicated world of state regulations. This unique search and comparison tool is based on extensive research into state licensing and certifications, including data collected from public data sources and local licensing board websites. SkillPointe makes it easy to find exactly what is needed to start working in any profession in every state. Site visitors can easily learn about everything required and go directly to the local license application so they can get started quickly.
“Licensed professionals now make up nearly 25% of all U.S. employees and that number continues to grow,” said Art OleszczukSkillPointe CMO. “With 75% of healthcare workers licensed, this is by far our most popular license category on the site, but growing concerns for worker and public safety in other industries have created many new local regulations that are difficult for job seekers to navigate. SkillPointe now makes that navigation much easier.”
The new LicensePointe™ the app is available here.
