Professional process servers are a special breed, to be sure, but the skills required are easily acquired, and are more mental than physical. The scope of work is very well defined, and the regulations are few and clear.
Georgia does not require licensing of private process servers. There is a certification process that facilitates authority to serve in cases from specific courts on an annual basis, rather than a per case basis. Certification of process servers in Georgia is defined in O.C.G.A. 9-11-4.1
