CDT Reinstatement Policy
IACP DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Certification Reinstatement Policy
All IACP Members are subject to the
IACP Code of Conduct. In addition, members holding certification
from the IACP's Department of Education are subject to the DOE's
A lapse of membership results in automatic revocation of a certificate. One whose membership has lapsed is regarded as a non-member. Non-members may not hold IACP Certification status, and are thereby not permitted the use of or the implication of a certification issued by the IACP.
Non-members may not use their prior certification in any manner and must remove any and all IACP certified designations from their marketing materials, website, biographies and advertising.
If a lapsed member wishes to reinstate their membership, their certification status will not be automatically reinstated. To reinstate a lapsed certificate, a formal petition, with a non-refundable fee of $25, must be submitted to the Department of Education within 90 days of the members' formal membership expiration date. The member must be once again in good standing with the IACP (paid their dues at the appropriate level of membership), and state reasons why they should be considered for certification reinstatement. Acceptance or denial of all petitions is at the sole discretion of the Department of Education, and all rulings become final. Renewing members not meeting these guidelines may again go through the testing process as though they were a new member.
Denied petitioners, must remove any and all IACP certified designations from their marketing materials, websites, biographies and advertising until or unless they have completed the testing process successfully again.
