Approved MEPAP Instructors

The Modular Education Program for Activity Professionals (MEPAP) is the proprietary, evidence-based Core Curriculum required to earn NCCAP Certification. The MEPAP is structured as a two-part program involving a total of 180 hours of educational learning and 180 hours of experiential learning that includes practicum work. Each part consists of 90 hours of coursework and 90 hours of practicum assignments.

  • MEPAP Part 1: Core Content 1-11 prepares students for the essential functions and duties of an Activity Professional: to design, deliver and evaluate activity services for older adults across the continuum of care.
  •  MEPAP Part 2: Core Content 12-20 prepares students to apply principles of management in their role as an Activity Professional: to provide service through leadership, advocacy, using principles of planning, organizing, staffing, directing and controlling.

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

Approved MEPAP Instructors are located throughout the US and globally. Instructors teach using approved education delivery methods: 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.
