NAEOP - Professional Standards Program

If you are starting your Professional Standards Program (PSP) Certification journey, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the NAEOP Professional Standards Program page of their website and print Forms I and II. (The forms are located toward the bottom of the web page.)

  2. Complete Form I and prepare a file folder for your PSP forms and materials. Note: If you complete Section 4 on Form I, keep the documentation for the inservices separate from Form IIIa documentation.

  3. Ask your supervisor to complete an evaluation of you on Form II.

  4. Gather all your certificates of completion for any professional development you have obtained (you can go back to July 1, 1980). Organize these into the following three sponsoring levels:  National, State, and Local.

  5. Download Form IIIa and start typing the information beginning with National organizations. You can make copies of Form IIIa or request an Excel spreadsheet from me.

  6. If you are not a member of NAEOP, you need to complete the NAEOP membership form and mail to NAEOP. You need to be a member to become certified.

  7. Download Form IIIb to list your “Professional Activity” from National, State, or Local educational organizations. Make copies of your membership cards.

Everyone who receives their NAEOP certification this year is recognized at the PSP Banquet held at the NAEOP Annual Conference and Institute in July. The 2018 conference will be held in Bloomington, Minnesota at the Double Tree by Hilton.

If you have any questions during the process, please contact Katherine Reichley, CEOE. She will help you achieve the goal of obtaining your PSP certification.
