LOS ANGELES, CA—December 16, 2020—Certemy, a leading provider of professional licensing management software for state licensing boards, is pleased to announce that the Nevada Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists & Clinical Professional Counselors has deployed Certemy as their online software platform for professional licensing. Certemy is helping the Board process license applications and renewals faster with higher completion rates and fewer errors. The Board will also use Certemy to streamline third-party license verification requests and plans to use Certemy’s Enforcement Management module to investigate complaints and manage disciplinary actions.
“Certemy is a great partner for us,” said Dr. Lynne Smith, Executive Secretary for the Nevada Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists & Clinical Professional Counselors. “The state requires us to provide our licensees with an online submission option for applications and renewals. Certemy allowed us to meet that requirement. The software is easy to use, the Sales and Support teams have been a pleasure to work with, and we love the company’s commitment to continuously enhancing their software.”
What problems is Certemy solving for the Board?
The biggest problem Certemy solved for the Board was their need to comply with a state mandate for providing licensees with an online submission option for applications and renewals. Before implementing Certemy’s online licensing management platform, the Board managed its licensing program with PDF forms, snail mail paper submissions, and several Access databases.
With paper applications, submitting application and renewal documents was slow and laborious for licensees. Reviewing and approving those applications was equally time-consuming for Board staff. Also, storing paper documents for each licensee for 30 years following their final year of practice, a state requirement, required considerable paper handling and storage.

Certemy solved all these problems and more for the Board. Specifically, Certemy provides the following features and benefits:
Why did the Board choose Certemy?
The Board came to Certemy after an unsuccessful attempt to deploy another third-party solution that failed to provide the stability they needed to process license applications online with confidence. They found Certemy after soliciting licensing software recommendations from fellow members of the American Association of State Counseling Boards (AASCB). After several demonstrations and discussions, the Board selected Certemy for the following reasons:
