General Application Process and Fees
You will provide:
Your application will be reviewed by two members of the CEP Reading Committee.
If your application is approved, you will be invited to schedule a time to sit for the CEP Assessment within six months. Your assessment will be reviewed, completely anonymously by two readers -- they will never know whose assessment they reviewed.
On the assessment, you will be expected to:
There is a $300 assessment fee (any applicant who initially fails to pass the assessment is provided with specific feedback on areas needing improvement and will be allowed 12 months to sit for the assessment again without paying an additional fee)
Certification is granted for five years. There is an annual fee of $150 to keep the credential valid.
Recertification is required every five years. This includes meeting the continuing professional development requirements for recertification and submitting the recertification forms documenting your ongoing education/engagement. The $150 annual renewal fee covers the recertification cost for the recertification year.
The American Institute of Certified Educational Planners (AICEP) is committed to fully including all qualified individuals. As part of this commitment, AICEP will ensure that persons with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodations for the certification process. Please contact the AICEP Executive Assistant at email@example.com if reasonable accommodation is needed.
