The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) has outstanding coordinators and instructors each year sharing their knowledge and expertise with the students.
Most of those individuals are credentialed, denoted by either an AG (Accredited Genealogist) or CG (Certified Genealogist) behind their name. The International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen), one of two credentialing bodies, has recently released a new guide to help genealogists both consider the option of, and navigate through the credentialing process with their organization. The guide is titled "Guide to Applying for an AG Credential."
ICAPGen is based in Salt Lake City and jointly sponsors an evening event at SLIG in conjunction with the Family History Library.
