Modular Education Program for Activity Professionals
As a Licensed Partner with the National Council of Certified Activity Professionals (NCCAP), our Licensed Instructors offer the standardized Modular Education Program for Activity Professionals (MEPAPI) for the Activity Professional Certified (APC) certification.
For over 30 years, National Council of Certified Activity Professionals certification has been accepted for meeting the highest standard of CMS F680 and is the only certification accepted by NAAP for meeting the Professional Standards of Practice to be an Activity Professional.
The MEPAP is infused with the person-centered principles of the Pioneer Network as well as the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care Practice Recommendations. It is reviewed and updated regularly by an independent Clinical and Curriculum Advisory Board of geriatric experts and long-term care practitioners.
