School Recognition Program

Invest in your school's future: apply to have your programs recognized by the NHPC. To become recognized, the school and training program will be subject to a Credentialing Assessment Protocol (CAP).

Questions about the NHPC Recognized School Program can be answered by calling the NHPC toll free in Canada or the United States at 1.888.711.7701

School Recognition Fees are as follows:

Student/Individual requests $50.00 (Canadian School)
$100.00 (Non-Canadian School)


School requests $500.00 (Canadian/Non-Canadian)

Please note, that NHPC can only recognize school programs for modalities, or practice fields, that are currently recognized by the NHPC. To find out which modalities NHPC currently recognizes, see the Recognized Modalities page in this section.

Improve Your Reputation
Having your programs recognized by NHPC improves your reputation for excellence. NHPC regularly gets inquiries from prospective students and clients. Recognition by the NHPC links you with one of Canada’s largest voluntary professional Associations.
