Certified Senior Advisors
A CSA is a professional who has specialized knowledge about aging and the important health, financial and social issues that affect the majority of seniors. All candidates for the CSA designation must meet eligibility requirements established by the independent SCSA Certification Council, an independent body that oversees the development and administration of the CSA exam and certification program. These requirements include continuing education about senior issues and/or experience working with seniors, passing both a background check and the CSA exam, and signing the CSA Code of Professional Responsibility. Typically, CSAs already have expertise in a professional discipline; and while many are licensed, it is only after they meet all eligibility requirements that they may use the designation Certified Senior Advisor.
