ACCP Recertification Resources

ACCP Recertification Professional Development Programs

ACCP Recertification Planning Tool
The new ACCP Recertification Dashboard assists the BCACP, BCCCP, BCCP, BCGP, BCIDP, BCOP, BCPPS, or BCPS by compiling earned recertification credits; tracking new credits as they are earned; and scheduling new opportunities for credits from upcoming ACCP professional development programs. Types of credit and their sources are identified by a color-coded bar graph for easy identification of recertification credit status.
