I have completed similar certificate programs from other organizations. Does PTCB recognize the completion of those programs in place of completing a PTCB-recognized education/training program or completing an assessment?

No, if the Assessment-Based Certificate Program for which you are applying requires the completion of a PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Program, programs other than those recognized by PTCB cannot be used in place of completing a recognized program.

Eligibility requirements for Assessment-Based Certificate Programs can be found in the PTCB Candidate Guidebook. Recognized programs for each of the available Assessment-Based Certificate Programs can be found in the PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Program Directory.
