The Child Life Certification Commission provides Certified Child Life Specialists with a digital badge which will help credential holders inform coworkers, employers, potential employers, and other parties of their achievement. The CCLS badge can be used in a variety of media and provides real-time verification of certification status.
The Certification Communications Committee is charged with communicating with the public regarding the certification program, including publication of the CCLS newsletter.
Practicums are designed as introductory experiences for individuals interested in pursuing a career in child life.
While the Association of Child Life Professionals (ACLP) does not require specific practices or protocols for child life practicums at this time, and child life practicums are not currently accepted to establish eligibility for the Child Life Professional Certification Examination, ACLP encourages child life practicum programs to follow these recommendations set forth in 2013 by the ACLP Practicum Task Force.
