Updated HPAR Points for APHSW-C
Beginning in 2024, all APHSW-C certificants will be required to earn 60 HPAR points for renewal.
The number of CECs required was reduced from 60 to 40 in 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, which limited the ability to accrue CEC points.
Certificants may submit their Learning Plans up to one year before the expiration of their certification. If you are due to renew in 2024, you may submit your learning plan by 12/31/2023 and only need to complete 40 HPAR points.
Do you need help with recertification? We created a comprehensive video guide to help certificants through the renewal process. The LearningBuilder video guide will walk you through it from start to finish. Learn how to log in, add activities to your Learning Plan, and submit your application.
