Board Certification

Physicians, lawyers, and plumbers are board certified, what about you?

Certification is endorsed by the AMI to encourage lifelong learning and to measure professional competency for illustrators and employers. Similar to specialty certification for physicans, the competency evaluation consists of a written test and portfolio review.
