Ready for Certification
Share |

At this site you can register for the Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) and Certified Temporary Staffing-Specialist (CTS) certifications, as well as participation in a Certification Immersion Class if you elect to do so.

Upon completion of the registration process, you will receive the appropriate training manual and can begin the study process. When you feel ready to sit for the certification examination, you will return here to complete the examination process.

If you desire to register for the Certified Employee Retention Specialist (CERS) certificate, you will need to contact to determine when the next CERS workshop will be held and register. Participation in the CERS workshop and earning a passing score on the examination administered at the end of the program are perquisites to certification.

The Certification Center has been updated and improved to include a "personal exam history" section for every individual who purchases any certification exam. As you will see, this area keeps a record of completed exams, incomplete exams and available exams for every individual that has registered!

If you are visiting this area for the first time, there are a few short steps necessary for you to first create your "personal history" area and then sign up for any of our certification exams.

Let's get started! Before we cover the actual steps to registering for an exam, presented here is a list of the current exams available:

Certification Registration (including initial examination)
Exam Name Non-member Price Retest Member Member Retest
CPC Registration $550.00 $275.00 $350.00 $175.00
CTS Registration $550.00 $275.00 $350.00 $175.00

Not a NAPS member? NAPS members save nearly 40% on certification registration fees plus receive year round resources to obtain continuing education credits. NAPS membership is one of the easiest ways to maintain your certification. Learn more about membership and join here.

Individuals who have registered for certification and wish to participate in a Certification Immersion Class (CIC) will be charged an additional $100 to attend the Immersion.

There are only a few short steps to purchasing and taking your exam. Good luck!

  1. At the bottom of this page is a log on or a register now prompt. If you have registered before, using this certification center, please log on to return to your personal exam history. If you have never logged on before, please click on the register now button at the bottom of this page.
  2. Fill in the New User Login Screen (first name, last name, email address, etc.) and click on the SAVE button when done.
  3. The system will take you to your personal exam history area. This area is broken down into three sections: completed tests, incomplete tests and available tests.
  4. Click on available tests to see a list of all current exams. Click on the exam name to get a brief summary of the exam. To select the exam you would like to purchase (CPC, CTS, PRS or HIPAA Awareness), click on the "sign up now!" button just to the right of the exam name and price.
  5. You must complete the checkout process and pay with a credit card (once finished with data entry, click on the "Process Payment" button).
