The Certified Employment Support Professional (CESP™) credential recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a sufficient level of knowledge and skill to provide integrated employment services to a variety of populations with disabilities.
The CESP™ is accredited through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Accreditation for professional or personnel certification programs provides impartial, third-party validation that the program has met recognized national and international credentialing industry standards for the development, implementation, and maintenance of certification programs.
The CESP’s content validity is demonstrated through a comprehensive job analysis conducted and analyzed by experts, with data gathered from stakeholders in the occupation or industry.
On June 12, 2023, at the APSE 2023 Conference in Columbus, Ohio, we had seven candidates sit for the CESP exam and all of them passed. The candidates expressed to proctors the more relaxing environment and the community feeling knowing that they were all going to be taking the same exam. Connections were made!
We welcome these new CESPs! Amy, Christina, Daniel, Danielle, Erica, Rose, and Tiffany!
We also want to thank our proctors for the event- Thank you Lisa Svidron, CESP, and Beth Barr, CESP!
Hosting an in-person exam at events or for larger groups has never been easier. We encourage agencies with larger staff needing to earn their CESPs to consider hosting an exam on-site.
