LOS ANGELES—June 4, 2020—Certemy, a leading provider of certification management software for professional certification boards, announced today that the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Certification Board of Georgia will use Certemy to automate applications and renewals for 2,400 certified addiction counselors statewide.
Certemy will help the Board reduce administrative costs, speed application processing times, and provide public access to real-time registry data. Most importantly, the new system will automate busy work and free up board staff to spend more time supporting counselors and growing the Board.
