Certification for Educational Office Professionals

The continuing education of educational office professionals is essential in coping with rapidly changing conditions in the profession

as well as in making progress in your career at USM. The National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP) provides

the opportunity for members to enhance their professional competencies through academic programs, conferences, and institutes.

These incentive activities enable members to take progressive steps toward their desired professional growth level.

Successful completion of an NAEOP approved program qualifies members for one or more of the following PSP certificates:

  • Basic
  • Associate Professional
  • Advanced I 
  • Advanced II
  • Advanced III
  • Associate’s Degree 
  • Bachelor’s  Degree
  • Master’s Degree
  • Doctoral Degree

Each certificate is based on requirements in the three areas of education, experience, and professional activity. The Distinction of Certified Educational Office Employee (CEOE) may be earned after completion of Advanced III or higher certification.

In May 2002, NAEOP members approved a recertification program. Every five years those holding PSP certification should be recertified at their level of achievement. Please visit the NAEOP website (www.naeop.org) for detailed information.
