You can earn ALA/APA Certification!
The Minnesota Library Certification program can be used to earn the Library Support Staff Certification from the American Library Association / Allied Professionals Association (ALA/APA) program. The two programs have coordinated the competencies which need to be fulfilled to achieve certification in both programs. All you need to do is pay the additional fee to the ALA/APA program.
You can find information on the ALA/APA program on the ALA website at http://ala-apa.org/lssc/
