News release from Rn Biz News - Rn Biz December 2022 | AARST
"NRPP is dedicated to providing continuous professional development for our credentialed professionals and aims to ensure that they are updated on the current ANSI-AARST standards. To aid in this effort, the Certification Council has determined that it is necessary to implement a mandatory ANSI-AARST standards CE requirement in 2023 for all renewing NRPP-Certified Measurement Professionals, Mitigation Specialists, Measurement Field Technicians and Mitigation Installers.
- An individual who is certified in both measurement and mitigation will need to complete both courses to renew both certifications.
- The courses will be four hours each: Measurement Standard Overview (4 CE hours) and Mitigation Standard Overview (4 CE hours).
- This new requirement applies to certification renewals beginning July 1, 2023.
One training provider has already developed courses and it is anticipated that courses from more providers will be available no later than April 1, 2023. Completion of such overview courses will be required for all future renewals.
The NRPP Certification Council also revised the minimum CE requirement from 16 hours to 12 hours for individuals with certifications in measurement only or mitigation only, to provide parity with the 24-hour CE requirement for individuals certified for both measurement and mitigation, effective January 1, 2023."
