WFH Is your board ready to work from home if a second COVID wave hits?

Is your board ready to work from home if a second COVID wave hits?

2 minute read

The sudden, unexpected requirement for board staff to work from home presented a significant challenge for many professional certification and licensing boards. Simple things like checking the mail and cashing checks became difficult — and even dangerous. While some staff members are slowly returning to the office, prudent boards are thinking ahead and preparing for the worst — a second wave of COVID.

A work from home (WFH) solution is the new top priority for many boards

If your current operation requires professionals to snail mail or fax submissions to your office for board staff to review and approve — and those staff are stuck at home — your certification and licensing programs (and fees) can quickly grind to a halt. Automating manual workflows — what used to be a "nice-to-have" just 6 months ago — has suddenly become a "must-have" for many boards.

Certemy can help with simple, reliable, affordable work from home (WFH) certification and licensing management software for professional certification and state licensing boards.

Certemy can automate your current application and renewal processes in as little as 30 days — for less than you might think — and solve all of the following problems:

  • Eliminate paper applications and submissions — removing the need for staff to visit the office

  • Allow applicants and renewing professionals to complete all board requirements online from any smartphone or computer including:

    • Starting an application or renewal from your website

    • Completing information forms

    • Paying application and renewal fees

    • Uploading evidence documents

    • Submitting continuing education (CE) hours

    • Logging supervised hours

    • Providing supervisor references


  • Allow your board staff to review, approve, and audit applications and renewals online from their computer — at home or in the office

  • Eliminate the need to cash checks at the bank with online payments

  • Automatically generate and distribute personalized certificates or wallet cards to successful candidates

  • Automatically update a real-time registry of credentialed professionals on your website

  • Provide real-time reporting and dashboards to help you track the big picture and manage by exception
