State/Local Requirements

 

HAA provides national certifications. However, your home state may require additional state certifications to practice in your field. Check with your state to ensure you meet all requirements. HAA cannot guarantee acceptance by interested parties. Once the applicant passes the HAA national examination, the credentialed initials can be used in professional titles.
