No. You must request the new Document of Completion from the training program you attended and meet all other criteria as listed on the application. Be aware that having received a past certification from your training program has no bearing on your eligibility for the new NCTTP, and only means that you completed the training program.
This new certificate was designed to ensure that all applicants are providing consistent documentation. All CTTTP-accredited programs have agreed to provide a Document of Completion that includes standardized language.
You should check with the program that issued your original CTTS credential. Most programs have discontinued issuing and renewing certifications in favor of the new national process. Currently, there is no universal or formal recognition of CTTS as a credential.
The new certificate is not yet the same as a certification, but you may use NCTTP to note that you have been awarded the certificate. Once the next phase is launched, which is estimated to be early in 2020, a new credential will be created.
No. This is a one-time certificate that provides national recognition of your training and experience. It does not require renewal. The NCTTP is the first step of the process created by ATTUD and NAADAC in partnership with the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP) to create formal, national recognition for tobacco treatment specialists. The next phase of this initiative is estimated to launch early in 2020. You are encouraged to monitor the NAADAC and ATTUD websites, as well as the ATTUD listserv for information, announcements, and next steps.
The fee supports the staff time required to review applications, maintain accurate records and ensure the integrity of this process.
NAADAC automatically sends a receipt for all payments received. If you have not received a receipt for your application fee, please check your email spam folder. If it is not in your spam folder, please email [email protected] to receive a duplicate copy of your receipt.
