Certification Maintenance

As an NCP, it is important to maintain your credential through the support of continuing education (CE). Explore below how you can maintain the designation, including earning and filing CE credits.

In the year the NCP certification is earned, you are provided additional time (over the 5 years) between April 1 and Dec 31 to maintain the accreditation. NCP Continuing Education (CE) Credits are filed between Jan 1 and Mar 31 annually for prior year’s earnings using the ECCHO Online dashboard.

All completed Workshops are automatically recognized by ECCHO. There is a maximum of 30 credits and 2 NCP Workshops which can be recognized within any given year (rollovers are not allowed).

All CE credits submissions will be evaluated against the NCP Exam blueprint for proper approval and CE credit allocation.
