The FCB has developed a two-phase certification program, which allows applicants to learn and demonstrate competency while on the job.

The first phase is to earn provisional certification, which requires applicants to meet education, training and testing requirements. A provisional credential is issued for a 12-month period. All CPS applicants must be employed or volunteering at an eligible site as a condition of provisional certification.

Phase two occurs during the provisional period. Provisionally certified prevention professionals must complete all on-the-job supervision and work experience requirements and submit an application for Upgrade to the CPS credential before the provisional credential expires.

When all requirements are met, the CPS credential is awarded.
