CEAP® Certification


CEAP® certification must be renewed every three years. Recertification may be completed up to 6 months prior to the CEAP® Status expiration date listed in the CEAP's User Account profile. As a courtesy, prior to the expiration date, a recertification application packet is mailed to each active CEAP.
