It takes a lot of hard work, perseverance, and time to obtain a professional license and hold certain jobs. The rigorous application process and training required is meant to protect the public who use the services of certain types of businesses. Holding a professional license also protects the professional from unjust or unwarranted removal of their license – there is a disciplinary process that must be followed which allows professionals certain rights when their license is at risk.

Licenses in this Section
In this section, we cover a few common professional licenses. We have a page dedicated to teacher licenses and teacher defense. Working with minors puts teachers in a position of power and authority, and it is important that teachers do not abuse this power. That is why the Connecticut State Board of Education takes allegations of teacher misconduct so seriously. Oftentimes, complaints are minor and dismissed without an investigation. But sometimes, the situation could worsen and you could face a suspension or revocation of your license. This might be the case if you face a criminal charge, are accused of a sexual relationship with a student, if you falsely obtain a license, or in several other situations outlined on this page. Learn more by visiting our teacher defense page.
