Virtual Training Option Coming Soon!

We are working on a virtual version of the in-person training anticipated to launch late Summer / early Fall 2020. Stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, any FPA is able to complete the PEP Level 1 online training and apply for a FPA Provisional Credential. The Provisional credential allows you to bill for the services provided for 18 months. If a FPA is not able to meet the training criteria within the 18 month they may apply for an extension for up to 12 months. Please contact our office for more information.
