1. What is MuseX™?

MuseX is the trademark (brand name) of the Professional Performing Artists Certification Board.  We are the credentialing body for actors, models, singers, musicians, dancers, clowns, and other professional performing artists.  Yes, clowns.  Don’t laugh; there’s nothing funny about clowns. 


2. How do you pronounce “MuseX?”

The “X” is a roman numeral “10.”  So, “MuseX” is intended to be pronounced “muse ten”–but we don’t mind if you pronounce it “muse ex.” 


3. How do I get to be certified by MuseX?

Practice, practice.  But seriously, folks, the certification process is straightforward:  Submit an application for the relevant certification program and endorsements for which you qualify; if you meet the initial eligibility requirements, you will have the opportunity to take the certification exam (with appropriate endorsement modules); if you pass the test, you will be certified.  Periodically, you will need to recertify by demonstrating either your continued competency (by retaking the initial certification exam) or your enhanced competency (by documenting continuing education and work experience).


4. Can I apply for the MuseX certification programs now?

“Patience, young Jedi.”  We are reaching the end of the development phase and will be opening the application cycle soon.  In the meantime, please use our Contact page to inform us of your plans to apply; we will keep your information on file and let you know when applications are available.
