Professional Credentials

A professional credential is a license, certificate, diploma or other document that proves an individual’s competency in a subject. A nursing license is a good example. Earning a diploma or degree in nursing does not mean you can practice as a Registered Nurse (RN). You must first take a state-administered exam to earn a license before you can practice as an RN.

That’s not the case with accounting. You can work as a bookkeeper or accountant without ever becoming a Certified Professional Accountant (CPA). However, becoming a CPA will definitely help your career.
