Becoming certified with NCCT shows employers (and the public) that you have met defined standards for career entry. Individuals who earn certifications are equipped to bring something more than just a resume or an application to the job search.
Since ongoing professional development is part of the recertification process, NCCT certificants who maintain active status will have documented completion of approved continuing education activities annually!
Each certifier determines their own certification requirements. While NCCT credentials are valid for five years from the certification date, valid credentials can be maintained in an active or inactive status. To learn more about active and inactive status, please refer to the Guide to the Recertification Process.
NCCT believes continuous learning is important in healthcare, and the annual completion of continuing education activities best harmonize with this belief.
A scaled score of 70 is required to pass all NCCT certification examinations.
