NEW INTERVENTION PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIAL AVAILABLE NOW
PCB is proud to announce the availability of a new credential for Intervention Specialists through a time-limited grandparenting process. Beginning April 1, 2013 through April 1, 2014, the Certified Intervention Professional (CIP) credential is open to anyone meeting the requirements and will be offered without having to take the examination. The exemption from the examination is only during the one-year grandparenting period stated above. When the one-year grandparenting period closes on April 1, 2014, the examination will be required for all new candidates applying for the credential. The CIP credential is available to intervention specialists regardless of the state or country in which you live or work.
Please click here for the CIP grandparenting application. Candidates applying for the credential but not meeting all of the requirements will be given an appropriate amount of time to come into compliance with the requirements or will be awarded an Associate Intervention Professional status which can be held until all of the requirements are met after which the full CIP credential will be awarded. For more information, please contact PCB at email@example.com.
