NCCPA Certification Information
The 10-year certification maintenance process includes five two-year cycles during which all certified PAs must log 100 CME credits online. During each of those two-year cycles, you must earn and log at least 100 CME credits, including at least 50 Category 1 CME credits. The remaining 50 credits can be Category 1, Category 2 or a combination of both.
Please note that Self-Assessment and PI CME are no longer required for PAs in the 10-Year Cycle. However, NCCPA will weight those types of CME more heavily, awarding extra credit for these now optional types of CME. For more information on this, please click here.
