Planning for Certification
Institutions that are candidates for CPCA Certification are required to complete a self-study followed by a site-visit.
The self-study has two parts:
1. Administrative Function
2. Academic Programs
The self-study is usually completed in 3 to 6 months.
Candidate Institutions may take up to three years to complete their self-study.
Candidate Institutions are assigned a Staff Mentor to advise them with the planning process and the submission of the Self-Study.
CPCA Certification Consultants are available to assist the Candidate Institutions with the preparation of the Self-Study.
