I suggest referring to: www.nccap.org Look under Instructor listing for your state and contact whoever is listed for your areas. If you do not have any luck with that, I teach MEPAP 1 in an independent/home study format that is NCCAP approved. Contact me at: dtntt@wctatel.net if interested.

 

Remember that the MEPAP 1 or 2 are only 1 of 3 components for national certification. You still need a certain amount of continuing education and a certain amount of actual work experience with individuals 55 years or older. You can research which track you would be taking as well to pursue your certification at the NCCAP website. Good luck.

There are several, and I mean several, MEPAP Home Study or Online Courses that are available. ALL the Instructors have been NCCAP pre-approved and their courses are available for those that do not have an instructor nearby or are unable to travel.

Go to www.nccap.org and click on "MEPAP Course Instructor Listing" and read through the information that we have available for you. Contact the instructors and see when they are teaching in your area. Also, contact instructors in other states as many are willing to travel if there are enough people who register! You could even get the course for FREE if you help sponsor the course and host it at your facility.

There are a ton of options! All of the info can be found at the www.nccap.org website.

Ellen Bremenstul, M.ed, ACC has been approved by NCCAP to teach the first MEPAP1 certification course through an online module. I am finishing the class now and it's great. She is actually in the process of moving to D.C. and will most likely start a new course in a couple of months. Her email address is: ellenbremenstul@att.net

Hi Julia;

 

I was certified 2 years ago, I took a class in OC at the Cypress Collage they offer the course I believe it is $25 if you have never registered. $10 Per course if you have contact the CEducation Department. It is a 9-10 Week Course ususally Monday 6-10 PM Parking is available for an extra fee. The course was great And learned alot I believe it would be helpful. This couse is Activity Leader in Long Term Care. But if you work in RCFE They do accept it as well

 

Best of luck to you. Melissa CAD :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can this course be taken with the ever slow dial up? That is all that I can get at my house where I would have to take the course.
