Kimberly’s Answer

Hello, you would need to find out the legal requirements for the State you are hoping to practice in. Most states require a certification or diploma obtained from an accredited school. This can usually be completed in 6 months.

Kimberly recommends the following next steps:

Find a local business and ask to shadow a worker
Look into your local college about certification
