FAQs – CE Courses
NRPP does not allow you to repeat CE courses. Please note, if you have taken a course from another training provider with a title similar to one of ours - that is not the same course. You can tell by the NRPP number assigned to the course.
Because there is so much rich content in the CERTI Entry Level Measurement or Mitigation courses, students often like to repeat the course as reinforcement of fundamentals. To fulfill that desire, CERTI has obtained approval of its Entry Level courses as CE so you can repeat the entry level courses as CE – in two formats for each course, one for 24 CE credits and one for 16 CE credits. Each of these can be completed one time.
For CERTI courses, you can go to "Course Approvals" to get a listing of the courses approved by your state. Most states accept courses that have been approved by NRPP. All of the courses provided by CERTI are approved by NRPP.

The number of credits the course is approved for determines the amount of time anticipated to complete the course.

As in all of our courses, we do not have a time limit and you can start and stop as you need to.
