The NHPC has a mandatory Continued Competency Program (CCP) for members to ensure that practitioners are safe and skillful. Members are required to receive 20 CCP credits every two years in the areas of ethics, CPR, First Aid, and continued competency activities.
The CCP helps practitioners fulfill their obligations of ethical and responsible client care through their knowledge, ability, skills, judgment, standards of practice, and commitment to lifelong learning.
The NHPC monitors its members' continued competency compliance through Continued Competency Program audits. Failure to comply with the CCP may result in membership being terminated.
