Nationwide Online Courses From Approved MEPAP Instructors

The Modular Education Program for Activity Professionals (MEPAP) is the evidence-based curriculum required for NCCAP Certification.  Unlike all nursing, medical and related healthcare professions, there are no mandatory state license requirements for Activity Professionals. The MEPAP was created by the National Association of Activity Professionals (NAAP) as the nationally accepted curriculum required to meet professional standards of practice.

The learning objectives and competencies of the MEPAP are validated by academic and healthcare experts and reviewed regularly by our independent Clinical and Curriculum Advisory Board to address changes in regulation, survey processes and CMS guidelines.  The MEPAP is a two-part course of 180 hours each that includes both study and practicums. Due to the absence of mandatory licensing for the Activity Profession, the MEPAP is required to earn NCCAP certification and meet the professional standards of practice of the Activity Profession.  NCCAP does maintain a certification track for Allied Health Professionals that does not require the MEPAP.

  •  MEPAP 1: prepares students for the essential functions and duties of an Activity Professional.
  •  MEPAP 2: prepares students to apply principles of management in their role as an Activity Director.

MEPAP courses are offered nationwide by approved Instructors who complete rigorous training and undergo a peer-review process.  This ensures the quality of education so students located anywhere are adequately prepared to take the National Certification Exam administered by an independent testing company.

Instructors teach using approved education delivery methods: remote via virtual classroom, face-to-face in person, online, self-study, guided study, blended, etc.  As each Instructor independently sets their structure and fee, we encourage you to investigate the following list of Instructors to find one that meets your needs and interests.  Contact each instructor for a schedule of classes. Note: "-1" at the end of Approval Number means only MEPAP 1 is taught by the Instructor.

1. Virtual Instructor Led Online Class.  Using platforms such as zoom, webex, etc.
