Why should I renew my National Patient Care Technician Certification (CPCT)

To maintain your CPCT certification, you’ll need to renew it every two years. This will ensure employers you are continuing your education in the field.

When you need to renew, you should prepare to do it at least 14-30 days prior to your expiration date. This will help you avoid any additional reinstatement fees.

Whether you’ve been certified with National Performance Specialists or not, you can renew your CPCT certification with us.
