PACP | LACP | MACP: Recertification
System owners rely on the data collected by PACP® certified professionals to be accurately coded in order to make important decisions regarding their maintenance and rehabilitation plans. This is why it’s essential that those professionals become recertified on a regular basis, either online or in a classroom.
