Can the ExCPT be Taken?
Certification is completely voluntary. Nevertheless, ExCPT certification provides national recognition of your knowledge and skills and may make you more marketable. Current technicians registered after January 1, 1995 must attain national certification by Marcy 1, 2014. Those registered before January 1, 1995 will be grandfathered..
