The online application is the most convenient and easiest way to proceed. Most people prefer that convenience. Plus you'll like the way the online application form remembers you and allows you to log off and come back to compilation of your specific accomplishments and educational credits.
The online form is also more streamlined than the previous paper version, making it easier and quicker for you to complete. Our application form is to be used for BOTH initial certification AND recertification. Please also print the Candidate Handbook, below, for important policy information.
