NAAP hosts its own continuing education events and conferences, and co-sponsors events with member institutes at their request.

We provide CE certificates of attendance, as requested and for a small administrative fee. Certificates are issued for full event attendance only and with a signed evaluation handed in at the end of a program. All certificates are emailed. Please see our events page or contact NAAP to enquire about CEs for your profession.
