While state laws vary regarding the requirements for a guardian to be appointed, Center for Guardianship Certification (CGC) certification sets a guardian apart from non-certified guardians as someone who has met nationally recognized requirements including a minimum level of knowledge and experience in guardianship services. That individual has proven their knowledge by taking an exam measuring their knowledge of guardianship principles and standards.
All CGC certified guardians:
- have sufficient skill, knowledge and understanding of universal guardianship principals
- are held to standards of practice
- meet nationally recognized requirements
- are required to maintain their certification by attending continuing education events on a continual basis
- are the leaders in quality and trusted guardianship service
