Opportunities for CFE Providers
CFEP Re-Credentialing Form
Examiners and associate examiners must apply for re-credentialing every two years. Re-credentialing will require documentation of a minimum of 10 C.E. hours in the area of child abuse or neglect within the prior two-year period. This continuing education requirement can be fulfilled in a number of ways such as conferences, training workshops, on-line or home-study C.E. programs and the CFEP coursepak of readings. Examiners should submit the CFEP re-credentialing form when they are due for re-credentialing, which can be found here:
