1     Your car breaks down. You need help with your taxes. You get sick. Your sink is leaking. These are problems you will face in your daily life. What do you do? Don't panic! Ask an expert.
 
2     An expert is someone who has training in a certain job. He can perform a service for you. He can give you advice when you need it. Doctors, mechanics, plumbers, and accountants are all experts. They all have some things in common.
 
3     All experts have credentials. Credentials prove that they can do what they say they can do. Education, a license, experience, and references are all examples of credentials.
 
4     An expert such as a doctor or lawyer is called a professional. Professionals have one or more degrees from a college. After they graduate, they must get some job experience. Then they must take a test to prove they have learned all they need to know. If they pass the test, they get a license to do their job.
