Professional Organizers

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

There are no licensing requirements for professional organizers. Likewise, certification is not necessary, but the Certified Professional Organizer credential provides credibility and a way to document advanced skills, knowledge, and experience. Certification is available from the National Association of Professional Organizers; this certification is granted to those organizers who have 1,500 or more paid hours (in a three year period) and have passed the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers (BCPO®) examination. Re-certification is required every three years. NAPO also offers specialty certifications in household management, life transitions, residential organizing, and workplace productivity.
