National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice (NCTTP)

The new NCTTP is now available! This was developed as a first step on the pathway to national certification.

We encourage all prior and new trainees to apply for this certificate. It is of value for several reasons, including:

  • It is a national credential, currently non-renewable
  • It may have implications regarding billing for services in the future
  • Possession of the NCTTP will hopefully provide a smooth 'grandfathering’ option to ultimate national certification

Obtaining the NCTTP (certificate)

Those meeting the requirements from an accredited TTS Training program are eligible to apply for the NCTTP. Go to www.naadac.org/NCTTP.

National Certification (anticipated)

This is under development. Eligibility requirements should be similar to those for the NCTTP, plus passing a new certification examination. The certification credential is planned as renewable (criteria to be established). Those who already possess the NCTTP may be offered a simplified 'grandfathering' process.
