The CEAP is an Internationally recognised qualification. Those who earn the designation "Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP)" meet the standard of EAP knowledge established by their peers in the Employee Assistance field. This is demonstrated by passing the CEAP examination, which is developed by the Employee Assistance Certification Commission in the United States. CEAP certification is granted for three years. Keeping the CEAP qualification requires a sustained commitment to continuing education as well as concurrent work-experience in the field.
The initiative to recognise the International community in its efforts to credential EA professionals has been of special concern to the EACC in recent years. In December 1997 five professional staff from IPS Worldwide sat the exam in Sydney Australia and were awarded their certification as CEAPs. By March 2000 there were over a dozen CEAPs either accredited or about to sit their exams in Australia.
EAPA's Certification Department can help you find out how to become a Certified Employee Assistance Professional® (CEAP), and once you are a CEAP, how to recertify.
