CACFP Professional Certification

For over thirty years our association has been elevating the professional standards of our community. Now we have the means to recognize those who continually go above and beyond with true passion for the program and what it means to millions of children.


Why Should I Earn the Certification of CACFP Professional?

Receiving your CACFP Certification shows your commitment to your profession and your willingness to uphold high standards. You will be able to enhance your professional image by adding credibility to your position and your agency while staying current on the latest topics, issues and solutions. Additional benefits for those who obtain the CACFP Professional designations include: 

  • Community Recognition
  • Competitive Advantage
  • Salary Enhancement
  • Personal Achievement

NCA offers two certification program opportunities. Both certifications require applicants to submit documentation of education and experience which allow them to receive the designation.

CCNP_Badge_2019.png

CACFP Child Nutrition Professional (CCNP)

CCNP is the professional certification for the home child care provider or staff employed at a center operating CACFP, and/or a CACFP agency (Sponsor, Head Start, State Agency, etc.) administering CACFP.

 

CMP_Badge_2019.png

CACFP Management Professional (CMP)

CMP Certification is for the CACFP administrator that has a minimum of 5 years of experience with at least 3 of those years being CACFP administration experience at a CACFP Agency (Sponsor, Center, State Agency, Head Start, etc.).


Dual Certification

CACFP Professionals may hold both certifications. If you apply for both at the same time, candidates must submit an application form, documentation of education and experience as well as the application fee for each of the certification designations. If a candidate holds one certification and applies for a second certification at a later date, s/he will be given a new certification expiration date specific to that designation. S/he will be expected to meet the CEU requirements and fees for each of their designations at the respective expiration date.

To be able to combine my education and experience to show that I am certified in the CACFP says a lot. It was a big personal and professional accomplishment.

Certification_Earning_Hours.png

Earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

The purpose of CEUs is to provide job-related professional development and growth experiences. Annual training (earning CEUs) is a requirement to earn and maintain your CACFP Certification.

Three-hour training = 3 CEUs
1.5-hour training = 1 CEU

Requirements can also be met by taking relevant college courses.

“ I decided to certify my entire staff because it signifies my investment in them as well as highlights their CACFP qualifications. Some may not have a college degree but they have years of experience, continuing education, and training. My staff is proud to wear their pins and it elevates them to a different level. The value to our organization far outweighs the cost.

Certification_Maintaining.png

Your CACFP Professional Certification is valid for three years.

How to Renew Your CACFP Certification

Renewal Process. NCA will email you a renewal form and notify you before your certification is due to expire. It is your responsibility to renew on time to avoid your certification expiring. Each individual is responsible for maintaining and keeping records of CEUs earned.

Submit your renewal fee with the renewal form to NCA at least four weeks prior to certification expiration. After NCA reviews and approves your certification renewal, you will receive notification of approval. If your renewal form is incomplete, you will receive a letter explaining what is required to maintain your certification.

NCA will check proof of CEUs via a random audit. Only those chosen for the audit will be required to send in documentation of CEUs earned. If you are selected for an audit, a notification to send CEU documentation to NCA will be included in your renewal notice.

If NCA does not receive your renewal documents within 30 calendar days of your certification renewal date, you will have to re-submit a new application and pay the initial certification fee again.

Renewal Requirements and Fees

You must complete the required number of CEUs during your certification period to be eligible for renewal.
