Many business professional are licensed members of various organizations that certify them for certain skills and abilities, sometimes because licensure is required for a specific practice but also because it demonstrates hard work and prestige. For most of these certifications, there is a requirement for individual members to actively report on their attempts to stay up-to-date with key industry topics and advancements, and a primary way of doing this is by completing various continuing education courses or participating in learning-oriented activities, though the specifics of these stipulations vary by organization and location. For example, certified public accountants, or members of the AICPA, who practice in Colorado are required to renew their license every two years, and must complete 80 hours of professional continuing education each recertification period.

With the sudden coronavirus outbreak in the United States, there's a relatively decent chance your employer has already shifted to a work-from-home paradigm, at least for positions where the tasks are majoritively online or easy to complete while away from the workplace. This is especially true for business professionals, since that type of work seems uniquely suited for remote operations. Even if your company hasn't opted to make that sort of transition yet (43% of American employees worked remotely even before the pandemic), there are plenty of organizations which have altered their plans in a precautionary attempt to keep their employees safe and healthy. A few well-known names include General Motors, Google and Microsoft -- even the federal government is allowing greater opportunity for teleworking.
