MEMBERS - NALS OF OREGON SCHOLARSHIP FUND INC. wants to help members with certification expenses!

 

CAREER CREDENTIALS - That's what certification is to the legal secretary, the legal assistant, the paralegal, and other legal support personnel.   What are your career credentials?

 

Do you sport ALP behind your name to indicate that you have attained your basic certification?  Or, how about PLS or PP to designate that you attained your professional goal?

 

Attaining ALP  certification demonstrates commitment and aptitude for succeeding in the ever-changing legal environment.  ALP certification is geared to the beginner who has completed one of the following:  a secretarial course, the NALS Legal Training Course, or one year of secretarial experience (not necessarily legal).

 

Certified PLS designation is an attainable goal for legal secretaries and assistants who want to be identified as exceptional.  Any person who has had three years' experience in the legal field may take the examination.  A partial waiver of the three-year legal experience requirement (up to one year) may be granted for certain post-secondary degrees, successful completion of the ALP exam, or attainment of other certifications.

 

If you are a NALS member, why not start studying for the certification exams!  Yes, there is some cost involved, but the NALS of Oregon Scholarship Fund, Inc. is making funds available to assist members with exam fees!

 

Member scholarships are available twice per year, and awarded at the NALS of Oregon Annual Meeting in April and at the NALS of Oregon Fall Board Meeting in September.
