A Central Dilemma
NCCA Accreditation Proposed Standard 22
The certification program must require periodic recertification.
Essential Element E. The certification program may select from among various recertification mechanisms, but regardless of the mechanism used, the program must document how the mechanism supports the purpose of maintaining competence.
I want to be able to change specialties without limitation.
Test me in what I do!
Commentary 5. Continuing competence may be defined differently than initial competence to account for role differentiation over time. For example, the range of services provided by a certificant may narrow over time due to concentration in a specialized area of service, and the certificant’s range of competence may narrow.
Commentary 12. If a certification program allows certificants to select from among multiple recertification options, then the certification program should document how each option links to the common goal of maintaining competence.

Program Development Costs
Program Administration Costs

Expectations vs reality
What actually happens
Commentary 10. Recertification requirements may differ for more recent certificants as compared to certificants from earlier years, but all certificants must be held to some form of recertification requirements that support the goal of maintaining competence. Different requirements may be the result of the need to balance the desire to advance requirements for the future of the profession with the need to maintain the contract made with earlier certificants.
