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).

GOOD NEWS!

We realize that some may have difficulty getting to live workshops, seminars, and other face to face education, thus the reason for the change. We heard you and we listened.  The requirement will still be: one half of all continuing education hours required be face to face. However, we will accept live webinars as a face to face session IF it is pre-approved by the Credentialing Center.   As a partner of NAAP we pre-approve their monthly Lunch and Learn webinars.  These sessions are free to NAAP members, so if you are not a member,  join soon at naap.info.  The instructions on how to take part in the Lunch and Learn sessions are on the website as well. Face to face status will be accepted on any webinar that you attend live that has been pre-approved by the NAAP Credentialing Center.  Please don’t hesitate to contact the office with any questions.
