Modular Education Program for Activity Professionals 

The required curriculum for NCCAP Certification.  The MEPAP was created by the National Association of Activity Professionals (NAAP) as the only accepted curriculum required to attain the knowledge and skills to meet the Professional Standards of Practice of the Activity Profession.

The Learning Objectives and Competencies of the MEPAP are validated by academic and healthcare experts and reviewed regularly by NCCAP's independent Clinical and Curriculum Advisory Board. The MEPAP is a two-part course of 180 hours each that includes both study and practicum. Due to the absence of mandatory State licensing for the Activity Profession, the MEPAP is required to earn NCCAP certification and meet the Professional Standards of Practice for the Activity Profession.  NCCAP maintains an Allied Health Professional Track and an Experiential Track for certification that does not require the MEPAP and thereby fulfills credentialing requirements of NCCA, ICE, and ANSI.

  • MEPAP 1: Prepares students for the essential functions and duties of an Activity Professional.

MEPAP courses are offered nationwide by Instructors who complete rigorous training and undergo a peer-review process.  This ensures students receive the highest knowledge and skills and are prepared to take the National Certification Exam administered by the independent testing company Prometric, Inc.
