Becoming CPSS Certified through APSC (SCAADAC)
The link above leads to the CPSS 2020 application form on our online certification portal Certemy. Once you’re on the site you will need to complete the application forms and upload a copy of your training certificate from an approved CPSS training provider. You will also need to fill out the application forms on the credential. There is a list of approved providers below.
