Recertification Requirements


The National Certification Board for Anticoagulation Providers requires all CACPs to recertify by examination every five (5) years. At least 10 weeks prior to his/her credential expiration date and the desired exam date, an applicant for recertification should submit a new application packet according to the current application procedures as described on the NCBAP website. The applicant should note available recertification dates and ensure that he/she applies in time to sit for an examination scheduled on or before the date on which his/her credential expires.

Applicants for recertification are required to meet the same professional qualification and experience eligibility requirements imposed on first-time applicants. See the section entitled "Eligibility Requirements" for additional details.

To apply for recertification, please login to your NCBAP and start a new application. Please note that you will not be able to start a new application for recertification until 90 days before your current CACP is set to expire.
