Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

There are no certification or licensing requirements for receptionists. Those who wish to hone their skills and enhance their chances to secure work can receive certification from the National Association of Professional Receptionists (NAPR). Qualifications for the certified professional receptionist designation include one-year membership to NAPR, at least five years of relevant work experience, and a diploma or certificate from an accredited business or secretarial school, or continuing education certificates. The International Association of Administrative Professionals also provides certification to administrative professionals. Contact these organizations for more information.
