CEPA Fees and Renewal Chart
To familiarize yourself with the CEPA program and what the application process entails, download the CEPA Program Handbook.
CE providers are approved based on their demonstrated ability to meet the required CE provider program components: CE Program Goals; Course Content; Instructor/Author Qualifications; Course Evaluation; and Program Management.
Applicants must show evidence of established methods to plan, present, evaluate, and continuously improve their CE courses using the standards and requirements in the program handbook.
Applications may be submitted at any time.
The initial application and review is a rigorous process that involves extensive hands-on evaluation by the CEPA Committee.
The initial application process may take up to sixty (60) calendar days. When reviews have been completed, applications will be approved, approved with recommendations, deferred, or denied.
If you were a previously approved BBS CE Provider, you will need to fill out the Initial Application in order to establish yourself a provider with CAMFT. The Renewal Applications are for CAMFT Approved Providers to fill out in subsequent years.
(All approved providers must pay an annual fee to maintain CAMFT-approved status.)
Annual Fee: $300 | $200 for Chapters and members who are individual CE providers.
Renewal Fee: There is no renewal application fee. However, at the time of renewal, CE providers must submit the annual fee with a renewal application.
