Retaining WMAC Related Certificates

Maintaining records of all your RCH credits is critical to the CPP/FPC recertification process.  If you misplace your RCH certificates from WMAC related events, it may be difficult for us to research and provide duplicates.  We will make every effort to help in replacing these documents, but cannot guarantee that we can do so in a timely manner.  For more information contact: The Education Committee at
