Is certification available for scopists?

At this point in time, NCRA has not instituted professional certification/continuing education credits for scopists since, like many organizations, they have been in a budget crunch. However, they may be “back in the black,” and we have spoken to past/present presidents of the association who have assured us scopist certification is still an important issue to NCRA. So at some point we believe there will be an actual professional exam given, like the exams reporters take, that will allow scopists to put a “CPS” (Certified Professional Scopist) designation after their names, just as reporters do.

Lucky for ISS grads, their training already meets the NCRA’s scopist job description, so passing the future CPS exam will be no problem for them.
