The Credentialing Center

The Choice of Activity Professionals for Board Certification

The NAAP Credentialing Center is organized as an independent body exclusively for the purpose of certifying Activity Professionals that meet the standards and requirements set forth by the Center and have successfully passed the competency exam.  More specifically certification by this body will assure that the individual will meet the criteria required by CMS F-Tags 249 and 281 to direct quality of life programming for seniors and others that they serve.

This option is open to all Activity Professionals working in Activities/Recreation with the elderly.  Activity Professionals have the option of certification as an Activity Professional - Board Certified (AP-BC) or an Activity Consultant - Board Certified (AC-BC).

THANK YOU!

We want to thank the board certified individuals who have continued to believe in us and have kept their credential current. We appreciate your support!  New applications are arriving on a regular basis and we are proud to assist these individuals with gaining a national board certification.

Statements made by other organizations that the NAAP Credentialing Center is no longer in existence is false. The Credentialing Center continues to provide an option for activity professionals to become nationally board certified. We are committed to activity professionals of the importance of being credentialed. Our standards follow the National Commission for Certifying agencies (NCCA), the only activity credentialing body that does so. Board Certification is attainable without the requirement of taking any class or course. Our job analysis and comprehensive exam cover the core competencies needed to direct programming.  Be assured we are not going anywhere and that our credentials are recognized by CMS under F tags 658 and 680.  Please call the office at 303-317-5682 to learn the facts and get your questions answered.
