To introduce prevention certification in Maine, the Maine Prevention Certification Board is offering a “GRANDFATHERING” PERIOD to Certified Prevention Specialist (PS-C) applicants.
This allows people whose work experience and education qualify them for certification to be “grandfathered” into the new credentialing system.
GRANDFATHERING PERIOD is JUNE 15 – SEPTEMBER 15, 2015
(Application postmarked by 9-15-2015 with no exceptions)
If you apply for a Certified Prevention Specialist credential during this time, you will only have to complete Step 1 of the application process. All applicants will still need to:
- read the manual
- fill out the PS-C application packet that documents experience and education
- submit a signed Code of Ethics
- arrange for references to be sent to the board
But you do not need to complete Step 2. Therefore, applicants will NOT have to take the IC&RC Examination. This will save our first group of PS-Cs both time and money ($115).
Be sure to take advantage of this one-time opportunity!
