Verify A Credential


Lapsed Fee Waiver for COVID-19

PCB will be automatically waiving late fees for professionals whose certification expires after 3/1/2020. You have up to one year beyond your expiration date to recertify your credential so there is no need to request an extension or waiver. When you are able, you will simply recertify as normal. Your current expiration date cannot be extended so your credential will lapse if you are unable to recertify on or before the expiration date. However, you can still recertify your lapsed credential up to one year beyond your expiration date. 



The endorsement for Criminal Justice is open to PCB certified professionals who hold one of the following credentials in good standing: CAAP, CAAC, CADC, CAADC, CCDP, CCDPD, CCS, CFRS or CRS. For complete requirements review the Certificate of Competency in Criminal Justice Application.
