At times, a CCP will be unable to maintain certification because of a deficiency in either clinical and/or professional activity. For this reason, and because many individuals wish to maintain an acknowledgment of having been certified, an inactive status may be requested. Individuals on Inactive Status receive all ABCP publications, and their names are published on the ABCP website.

The process for obtaining Inactive Status follows:

  • After notification of loss of certification, submit a request to the ABCP National Office for Inactive Status.
  • Sign an agreement to discontinue the use of the title, "CCP."
  • Remit the annual fee of $25 to the ABCP National Office prior to March 30th.
