Certificants that attend non-NPCP-approved workshops may petition to have those workshops approved.

Certificants must submit a completed CEC Petition Application and pay the Petition Application fee of $25.00. This fee is non-refundable. 

To verify that the workshop is eligible for petitioning before submission, please contact the Continuing Education Department.

Note: Distance Learning (Online, DVD or Home Study) is not subject to petitioning.

Appeals Process

Certificants whose petitions are denied may appeal. Candidates who wish to appeal may do so within 10 days of notice of a denied application. Appeals are assessed an administrative fee and are forwarded to the Certification Chair. Appeals are processed within 30 days. The decision of the Chair is final, and all fees related to petitioning and appeals are non-refundable.
