A Certified Prevention Professional (CPP), who does not complete the renewal procedures required every two years, will have his/her certification automatically lapse. This section addresses the recertification process for those who individuals whose certification had lapsed in Washington State or in another IC&RC jurisdiction and who are now interested in applying to regain their CPP or Certified Prevention Specialist credential.
Note: This is different than the normal renewal process every two years for CPPs.
To regain certification status, the individual will be required to complete and submit the current fee and documentation required in the Recertification Application, specifically:
Code of Ethical Conduct for Prevention Professionals
Criminal History Background Check
Recertification Application: Continuing Education/Clock Hours Form. (For more information, also refer to Guidelines for Acceptable Trainings.)
Please go to the Pay Online page to pay your fee.
If approved, recertification is granted for a two-year period.
