The Nevada State Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists & Clinical Professional Counselors Selects Certemy for Professional Licensing Management

The Board will use Certemy to automate license applications and renewals, provide 24x7 online access for board staff and professionals, and enable licensure reciprocity across state lines.

LOS ANGELES—June 11, 2020—Certemy, a leading provider of professional licensing management software for state licensing boards, announced today that the Nevada State Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists & Clinical Professional Counselors (NVMFT&CPC) has selected Certemy to automate professional licensing for 2,000 therapists and counselors statewide.

"The State of Nevada asked us to provide our board staff and professionals with online access so they can work as easily from home as they can in the office," said Lynne M. Smith, Executive Director of NVMFT&CPC. "Certemy allows us to meet their request with an affordable solution that will also speed processing times and reduce our administrative overhead."

What problems will Certemy solve for the Nevada State Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists & Clinical Professional Counselors?

The Board needed to upgrade a manual system that created a significant administrative burden and delayed application review and approval times. In particular, Certemy will help the Board solve the following problems:

  • Allow staff and professionals to manage applications and renewals online from work or home.

  • Eliminate paper.

  • Lower postage costs.

  • Reduce phone calls and emails.

  • Speed processing times for license applications and renewals.

  • Streamline continuing education (CE) tracking.

  • Automate CE compliance audits.

  • Create a public registry of licensed therapists and counselors.

  • Enable licensure by endorsement — license reciprocity across state lines.

Why did the Nevada State Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists & Clinical Professional Counselors choose Certemy?

NVMFT&CPC selected Certemy after testing several other licensing management software vendors. The Board chose Certemy for the following reasons:

  • Certemy Team — Certemy provided the blend of licensing management functionality — coupled with industry experience and implementation, training, and support infrastructure — that the Board was looking for in a technology partner.

  • Cost of Ownership — As a smaller board with a limited budget, the Board needed a solution that addressed their business needs at a reasonable and predictable price. Certemy offers affordable all-in-one annual pricing that includes implementation, training, support, and monthly platform updates. Also, because Certemy’s instant configuration features allow board staff to change application and renewal requirements without programming, the Board knew they would not have to worry about unexpected change fees down the line.

  • Industry Expertise — The Board appreciated Certemy’s comprehensive approach to CE management. The platform makes it easy for professionals to submit CE hours or units against the Board’s requirements. A common source of counselor frustration (which drives a significant volume of inbound phone calls and emails to board staff) is knowing which CE classes are approved by the Board for a credential requirement. Certemy provides a CE Marketplace option that automatically presents counselors with a list of pre-approved CE classes for each CE requirement they must complete. The marketplace eliminates counselor frustration and saves countless hours for board staff who no longer have to provide this information by phone or email.
