10 Years of NCCA Accreditation

The ACTION-CPT Certification exam was developed by the ACTION Certification Governing Board. The exam earned NCCA Accreditation in 2014 and has been renewed to 2024. Candidates can optionally include educational services to prepare for the certification exam by selecting from one of these bundled plans starting at $99 or $9.95 per month.

Candidates can take the exam without purchasing educational services by registering directly with the ACTION Governing Board. The registration fee is $99 and test center fees apply. ACTION Certification offers other certifications that are not NCCA Accredited.

Disclaimer: The use of ACTION Certification educational services is not required to earn certification and does not guarantee passing the ACTION-CPT exam.
