The CPCA Certification Commission requires certified institutions to maintain their membership in the FCPC or the CPCA and proactively maintain the standards of CPCA Certification.
Applicant and Certified institutions are required to submit an annual report to the CPCA Certification Commission that confirms the institution's compliance with CPCA Certification.
Some certified institutions are also required to complete a focused self-study on a specific area of certification. The CPCA Certification Commission then schedules a focus-visit to verify the information provided in the self-study.
CPCA Certification is awarded for a specified period of time. At the end of the certified period, the institution must renew its certification by completing a renewal self-study followed by a site-visit.
