Professional Certification

Get Certified, Get Recognized


The Registered Technology Transfer Professionals (RTTP) credential is a globally recognized industry credential that demonstrates that you are a skilled professional with proven expertise.

There are three routes to registration depending upon your level of expertise. For more information, view AUTM's webinar recording RTTP: A Career Development Opportunity. To learn about the next application deadline and how to apply, visit the Alliance of Technology Transfer Professionals website.

Many technology transfer professionals, who are primarily focused on the multi-disciplinary aspects of licensing, have also chosen to become Certified Licensing Professionals (CLP). The goal of the CLP program is to elevate the entire profession through knowledge and standards. Once certified, individuals must renew every three years to keep the credential active so CLP certification can truly be utilized as a framework for professional development.

Earning either credential showcases your enhanced qualifications, experience and commitment to professional growth, and positions you as a leader among colleagues and employers.
