The NADCA Certification Program is a defined curriculum that serves as an independent verification of assessed knowledge. Upon completion of the course requirements, participants will receive a certificate, not a license, for a specific level.
This is a recognition of proficiency and knowledge gained through educational programs and practiced through application. Each candidate is required to pass the specified examinations and fulfill the minimum apprenticeship period to become certified. Certification is effective for three years. Maintenance of certification or re-certification is as described under general procedures and issues.
The NADCA Certification Program is divided into three levels.
