Temporary Modifications for Annual Recertification

As states and local officials begin to relax "stay-at-home" orders, PCMA understands that the difficulty keeping social distance during PCM trainings creates health and safety concerns for all involved. While ANNUAL RECERTIFICATION IS STILL REQUIRED for all instructors and practitioners, PCMA is posting recertification deadline adjustments with this message and will be announcing additional, temporary policy adjustments in the coming weeks to further address these issues. Through these modifications, PCMA wishes to ensure not only the continued quality of PCM practice, but also to provide maximum consideration of everyone's safety.  

Grace Period Adjustments

Instructors:

Instructors with an ANNUAL CERTIFICATION DATE between September 18, 2018 and April 5, 2019, now have until November 1, 2020 to complete recertification. Instructors who are eligible for this extension do not qualify for any additional extensions*.  Recertification training (as outlined below) must be completed no later than November 1, 2020.  This extension has been granted automatically and there is no need for a formal request.

Practitioners:

Practitioners with an ANNUAL CERTIFICATION DATE between December 17, 2018 and July 4, 2019, now have until November 1, 2020 to complete recertification. Practitioners who are eligible for this extension do not qualify for any additional extensions*.  Recertification training (as outlined below) must be completed no later than November 1, 2020.  This extension has been granted automatically and there is no need for a formal request.

*Those who do not fall within the Annual Certification Dates specified above are NOT eligible for this extension and can still request a 30-day grace period extension as usual, by emailing pcma@pcma.com

We understand these are trying times for all. PCMA wishes to recognize the dedication of all instructors and practitioners who tirelessly and compassionately continue to give of themselves for the benefit of others in these extraordinary times.
