How to Earn a Credential:

NFPA offers two credentialing exams:

  • The Paralegal CORE Competency Exam® (PCCE™) was developed to assess the knowledge, skills and ability of early-career and entry-level paralegals.  Those who have passed the PCCE™ may utilize the CRP™ designation after their name. 
  • The Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam® (PACE®) is for those paralegals who have a comprehensive education in paralegal studies and years of practical experience.  Earning the RP® designation by passing the PACE® exam shows that you are one of the best paralegals in the field. 

The VPO is committed to supporting your paralegal career, including your goals for certification. 

Feel free to visit the other Certification pages on this site and then either contact the Certification Ambassador or visit NFPA’s website ( to get started.  Links to the exam applications, application requirements, study materials, and information about review courses are all available there when you are ready to take that first step toward certification.
