Registration provides access to the CEAP system and visibility to all that intend to complete
the accreditation process. Once a training provider registers, they are listed as “Pending
Review and Approval” in the CEAP Registry and “Find a Training Program Directory”.
There are two registration levels:
- $50 registration fee for individual trainers
- $150 registration fee for corporate training providers (companies or organizations, e.g.
hospitals, non-profit agencies.)
Registered training providers have one year to submit an application for one or more training
programs. To remain in the system for more than one year as “pending” a training provider
must repeat the registration process and pay the registration fee again. Once a training
provider has at least one program accredited by CCHI within the year of registration, they do
not have to pay the registration fee again. Instead, they must pay a specific program annual
