On March 1, 2024, the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE) will launch our new online application process for the Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC) aimed at streamlining and enhancing your experience as a designee. We are committed to continuously improving our services to better serve our valued professionals, and with this in mind, we are transitioning our CPC application to a cloud-based platform to provide you with a more efficient and user-friendly interface.

Key features of the new CPC application process include:

  • Seamless Accessibility Access your CPC application from anywhere, at any time, ensuring convenience and flexibility in managing your professional credentials.
  • Intuitive Interface Our user-friendly interface makes navigating the application process easier, with clear instructions and prompts guiding you through each step.
  • Efficient Submission Submit your application swiftly and securely, with built-in validation checks to minimize errors and expedite processing times.
  • Real-time Updates Stay informed throughout the process with real-time status updates, allowing you to track the progress of your application effortlessly.

As we transition through this process, candidates for new applications and designees renewing their designation will have the option of the traditional way with the Word fillable form or through the Cloud Generation platform for a short period of time (through April 30, 2024). On May 1, 2024, applications (new and renewal) will only be accepted via Cloud Generation.

To begin the process on Cloud Generation, follow the instructions below. Should you require an assistance, please do not hesitate to contact Mike Higgins at mhiggins@cpse.org or Ben Stone at bstone@cpse.org.
