Get the Spring in Your Step and Start Fresh...

Spring is finally in the air, time to spring forward and rejuvenate!  If you feel like you've been putting off applying for certification for months or even years,Spring is the best time to start.

Many CRSPs admit that they too once avoided the process for various reasons including:
  • The time commitment
  • The exam requirements
  • The application was too much work
Although these are all valid concerns, CRSPs also explain that the benefits of certification far outweighed the process. Some benefits include an increase in earning potential, enhancement of professional credibility, and an increase in opportunities. 

So what’s been stopping you? Here are the top three tips for applicants preparing to become a CRSP and remember we have many resources to help you on the journey to becoming a CRSP. Don't let fear hold you back from investing in yourself.  Good luck!
