    A certification review panel will be held on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the Loyola Retreat Center, in Morristown, NJ. 

    Certification candidates must have their form, supporting document (one PDF), and certification fees paid by March 16, 2018. Candidates are requested to register for this event so that we can plan for their review panel and schedule them accordingly.

    We are also accepting registration for volunteers who wish to serve on a review panel. 

    Registration is available for CPSP members (listed in the CPSP Directory), and you will need to sign in to the website if you wish to register. There is no additional charge to register, as the candidate will be invoiced for their certification fee(s) and review panel fee once their form has been submitted from their chapter. 

    The certification process is on our website -HERE

    After the deadline on March 16, candidates will be contacted within two weeks with the time of their review and the exact location. Review panels usually begin meeting around 8:00 AM, and a review takes between one hour to ninety minutes. Candidates only need to be present for the time of their appointment with the review panel - candidates do not need to be present for the entire day. 

    For more information about the certification process or to view our videos about certification, please visit our webpage: Certification Manual

    There will an NCTS event following the review panel. It is not required that candidates attend the event, but it is encouraged. For more information about NCTS-East, please click HERE
