Students can register for up to 3 certification workshops at a time, which makes them eligible to challenge more than one exam, and receive separate certifications for each certification workshop of study. The student’s resume would become very impressive with all these certifications, which would open up better employment opportunities. All of the certification workshops are offered during the day, evening or on weekends, making them accessible to adults who are working while attending certification classes.

This Certification Workshop Consists of about 24- 32 Hours in total (16-24 hours of preparatory home study and 8 hours classroom/clinical)

Regulations for the certification program for both NHCWA CEUs and NPCTA call for self-evaluations to be completed by participants to demonstrate that they had viewed the entirety of each preparatory reading. NCCMEA has chosen to require participants to complete “quizzes” to comply with these rules. If a participant receives less than a 70 percent on a quiz, he or she will be asked to retake the quiz. Each quiz may be viewed three times, making it possible for the participant to review either the entire or sections of the quiz in order to better prepare for the national exam.
