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.

Extensions Policy


Any APP 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 APP certification will be considered lapsed and he/she will be removed from the roster of current APP holders. To regain certification, refer to the Recertification section for information about this application process.
