CRC Certification

CRC Academy graduates who complete the course work and apply for certification earn the right to display the CRC Certified logo on their website and other branded materials. CRC certification is an indication your consulting practice is legitimate, reliable, and trustworthy. 


We worked with the South Carolina Department of Commerce, SCMEP, and the Small Business Development Center to understand the unique challenges facing businesses who wish to hire a consultant in our state. The resounding response: there’s just no way to know whether a consultant is qualified, legitimate, or worth the money.


We created a program for independent consultants that would deliver that validation. CRC Certified consultants create real, valuable results for the organizations that hire them. 


We are working to raise the standard of South Carolina independent consultants. CRC Academy is the first step in validating your own business. Register now.
