Continuance of Certification

Continuance of Certification (CoC), sometimes referred to as recertification or certification maintenance, is a service that helps professionals remain current in their professional practice. The Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE) CoC program offers a systematic approach for assessing continued professional development and practice in the human factors/ ergonomics/ user experience (HF/E/UX) profession. If you hold a certification credential from BCPE, attending and/or presenting at the HFES Annual Meeting qualifies for points you may use for certification maintenance!

  • If you attend a paid workshop, you may claim 0.5 points for each training hour
  • If you attend or deliver an unpublished presentation at the HFES Annual Meeting you may earn up to two points

If you have any questions, please contact BCPE at bcpehq@bcpe.org
