Applications for the Accredited Collaborative Professional credential will be made available to the public in the next few months. We are getting ready to Beta test our procedures with the Credentialing Committee and the Board of Directors. Once we have all the bugs out of the systems, we will open the process to everyone. No one will receive their designation until our annual conference in May.
Due to time limitations, we will only be accepting the first 60 applications once we open the process. There will also be a deadline for submitting applications, probably two months after we make the application available. We will then reopen the application process after the May Annual Conference.
Therefore, we urge you to begin gathering your proof of educational requirements and proof of five completed cases.
You can find the educational requirements in the Standards for Certification. Here is a link to those Standards……… If you have attended an IACP Forum in the past two years you can go online to the IACP site for proof of attendance. If you have attended an FACP Conference and do not have proof, you may still list your attendance and we will check our attendance records.
The application process will be completely on-line. You will access it through the FACP website and will be able to work on your application and save it for later. You will be able to upload your proof of cases and education. Payment will also be made on-line. WE WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH THE ON-LINE PORTAL.

I am intentionally writing this letter on Mother’s Day. On Mother’s Day, we celebrate the mothers we know and love and the mothers and grandmothers who have passed.
