State Licensure

Achieve state licensing in any state in the US.

No matter where you are operating in the US, each state has specific requirements for the licensing and regulation of schools.

Cyanna® can guide you from the very beginning of the school licensing process in any state, and for any level of education from certificate programs to Masters degrees. Whether your school is vocational, private degree-granting, K-12, on-ground or online, Cyanna® helps facilitate state-licensing by the appropriate regulator. We also assist with the development of policies and procedures, regulatory documents, curriculum, and responses to all deficiency and compliance issues.

"I have been working with Cyanna Education Services since 2015 when my healthcare company made the decision to apply for state licensure of a training program in Intraoperative Neuromonitoring. My experience with Jennifer Lamkin was second to none. She is not only knowledgable about all facets of licensure and state rules/regulations, but is also one of the most hard-working, conscientious, responsive vendors I have worked with in my almost 30-year career. I highly recommend the Cyanna team." - Maria Saraceno Ward, Director of The Center for Electroneurodiagnostics
