A: Profit First Professionals is a family of the most elite accountants, bookkeepers, and business coaches, who have helped drive profit in over 100,000 companies worldwide. Our mission is to Eradicate Entrepreneurial Poverty.
A: There are so many reasons! Only Certified Profit First Professionals receive expert training developed by Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First, and Profit First Professionals co-founder Ron Saharyan. Through this training, you will learn how to implement Profit First in any business. You will receive guidance on how to market and sell Profit First offerings in your business. And you will have the distinct advantage of leveraging the Profit First and Certified Profit First Professionals branding.
A: No. No university will hand out degrees or certifications without testing you understand and can successfully use the material. You will be allowed to display a Certified Profit First Professionals digital badge not because you bought it, but because you earned it.
What we will guarantee is a top notch learning experience and help through the process. If you do the work, set aside your limiting beliefs, and don't stop when things get difficult (and they will get difficult,) your certification will be an asset in your business.
A: Absolutely! We would love to have a conversation with you before you decide to invest in certification, though. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 855-802-2994 and ask for Ron.

A: The Credly platform will be preserved to ensure you have continued access to the evidence of your achievements. All of your public badges as of September 1, 2020 will remain public, and will continue to be viewable and verifiable. This means you need to go into your existing Credly account and make sure the digital badges you want to be preserved are set to visible/public (any badges marked as hidden will not be preserved).
If you want to check if you have any hidden badges or make any changes, you can:
- 1. Sign in to your Credly account.
- 2. Make sure the digital badges you want to be preserved are set to visible/public (any badges marked as hidden will not be preserved).
- 3. Complete this process before September 1, 2020.
With your preserved badge, you can continue to:
- 1. Send people to view your badge via existing links.
- 2. Have your badge verified by viewers.
- 3. Download your badge.
- 4.Request deletion.
You will no longer be able to:
- 1. Share directly to social media via the platform (you can still share your badge url)
- 2. View all of your badges on your profile page (each badge will have its own page).
Credly complies with the European Union's General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) in processing personal data of badge earners, and will continue to do so through this transition. If you want to delete your Credly account and its data, please contact us to submit a request.
