Renewal of your APP

The Associate Prevention Professional (APP) certificate can be renewed for one additional two-year period. APPs wanting to renew their APP status must show progress toward attaining the necessary “training” and “work experience” required to become a Certified Prevention Professional (CPP). Following a renewal, APP’s wishing to be certified in Washington State must apply for the CPP credential. However, APPs can submit an application to become a CPP at any time prior to renewal.

 

The APP is designed to support an applicant’s progress toward becoming a Certified Prevention Professional (CPP) in Washington State. Before completing your renewal for APP, please consider your eligibility to apply to become a Certified Prevention Professional.

Renewal of your CPP

For individuals awarded a CPP, the credential remains in effect two years from the date of certification.  It may be renewed by a process designed to assist the CPP in maintaining and expanding competence.  

 

CPP credential holders are expected to submit their renewal materials prior to their expiration date. Refer to the Renewal Policy section below - go to the link for Renewal Requirements below to go to the webpage with details including the CPP renewal application that may be downloaded. The PSCBW will strive to send a reminder to the CPP credential holder at the CPP’s last known mailing or email address, 30-60 days prior to the expiration date of his/her certification. It is the responsibility of the CPP to notify the PSCBW in writing of any contact changes such as name, mailing address, email address and phone number. Lack of communication from the CPP about such changes could delay the renewal process.

Extensions Policy

 

Any CPP wishing to acquire an extension to renew an expiring certification must present a request for extension to the Board in writing. A 30 day grace period may be allowed upon request. An additional 90 days (120 day extension from expiration of the certificate) may be granted at a cost of $50.

If an extension is not granted, the CPP certification will be considered lapsed and he/she will be removed from the roster of current CPP holders. To regain certification, refer to the Recertification section for information about this application process.
