ASA Certification Exams Updated for 2013

Are you currently studying for the Certified Staffing Professional® or Technical Services CertifiedSM exam? Did you recently pass the exam? Or are you just starting your research on the credentials that ASA offers?

ASA strives to bring you the most current information regarding state and federal labor and employment laws. Each year, the ASA certification team works closely with the law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP to review which state laws have changed within the past year and update ASA certification online exams and study materials.

See if the laws in your state have changed when you’re studying for the CSP® or TSCSM exam. If you have already passed the exam, refer to to stay up-to-date on your state’s laws.

More than 6,000 staffing professionals across the U.S. have earned the CSP or TSC credential. If you are not ASA certified, now is the perfect time to join them by earning an ASA designation—the only staffing industry certification based on current state and federal employment.

The new direct hire certification program, specifically designed for search and placement professionals, will focus on federal employment laws specific to recruiters and on state licensing and registration laws applicable to direct hire firms. ASA will release study tools, a practice exam, and the online exam for the CSCSM credential next month at the ASA Staffing Law Conference in Washington, DC, May 7–8. (The 2013 ASA Staffing Law Conference has sold out, but ASA members may purchase recordings of the sessions.)
