Certificate & Certification
Upon completion of the course, each NCTA student must complete an exam to determine content competence and demonstrate the knowledge necessary to earn their certificate of completion. The NCTA final exam is administered online through Class Marker. The exam consists of 150 multiple choices, true/false, and fill-in-the-blank questions. Students have two weeks after completing the NCTA curriculum to take their examination. Students who master the exam will be given a certificate of completion. The certificate will not allow students to use initials behind their name, and they will not be “certified.”
Students can now apply for certification through The Newborn Care Training Academy and our partnership with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). Students are not required to apply for certification. However, a certificate of completion is necessary to begin the certification process.
The Newborn Care Training Academy reserves the right to revoke certificates if a student is misrepresenting certificate use or practicing outside their scope of experience as described above.
Students must have attained a minimum of a high school diploma and be proficient in reading and writing English. Testing accommodations can be made by request for those whose native language is not English. However, all training materials are presented in English.
