New Certification Process

In May 2014, the Board of Directors appointed the Certification Reform Task Force and the Professional Development Task Force. After a several intense years of work and research, the two task forces proposed a new model to certify ACPE Certified Educators. In May 2016, after affirming the full proposal, the Board of Directors appointed a Certification Implementation Team.
