Becoming A Certified Professional Electrologist
The American Electrology Association believes that one of the most important steps an electrologist can take in their career development is to become board certified.
The Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE) credential signifies that your knowledge has been tested and measured against a national standard of excellence. Your commitment to keeping the credential, through ongoing continuing education, exemplifies the highest degree of professionalism.
Board certification is recognized as going above and beyond what is required. As a voluntary credential, this helps promote you as a true professional committed to continuing education pursuits
Board certification demonstrates to other professionals, as well as to the public at large, that you are serious about enhancing your knowledge - thereby better serving them.
Maintaining your certification keeps you aware of changes in the profession and gives you the tools to respond to those changes. This accomplishment is evidence of a pursuit for excellence and the ability to meet standards and requirements.
The CPE exam is administered immediately prior to the AEA's Annual Convention. To request a CPE Test Bulletin, containing a registration form and requirement information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also view and download a copy.
