About our Patient Care Technician Certification renewal process
Renew your Patient Care Technician Certification in 4 easy steps:

The first step you need to take to renew your CPCT certification online, is to register, which you can do here.
2Using our e-learning platform
Once enrolled, we will assign you an academic advisor. We will send you your advisor’s direct contact information via email, along with your CPCT certification renewal materials. Your advisor will monitor your progress, provide your exam results, revise your resume and assist you with job placement.
With our one-of-a-kind e-learning platform featuring intelligent automation, you will easily navigate your way through our renewal program. Though our advisors are here if you need them, we offer such an incredibly easy user experience, you’ll most likely not even need them until it’s time for the job placement process.

We will provide you with a digital copy of your CPCT certification in your account instantly once you’ve successfully completed and passed the exam. The digital copy of your certification is available to be printed and verified immediately.
