Licensure and Certification
It is ANHO’s responsibility to research the licensing requirements for the Licensing Exam of the student’s chosen program in the State in which the student or applicant lives. ANHO’s curriculum complies with the State of Florida’s Requirements, but may not fulfill the requirements in other states.

Graduates of ANHO may apply to take the licensing exam in Florida if they so desire. If a student plans to apply to take the licensing exam in any other State, ANHO will provide the student or applicant with current contact information for any applicable licensing boards, and advise the student or applicant to determine whether the program meets requirements for Licensure in the State where the student is located.
