A person is a go professional when they are certified by one of their national organizations.
The AGA's certification process, begun in 2011, is the certifying authority for the United States and Canada. The AGA is the 5th Go association which has its own professional system in the world after Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan. The AGA certified its first and second Go Professionals in 2012 and plans to certify one additional professional in the Second Pro Qualification Tournament in January 2-8, 2014.
