Evaluation of Pilot Items – 2017 NCP Program
October 18, 2017, 1:00 PM CT
NCP Credits: 6
img
EPCOR is proud to announce that EPCOR Payments Conference – Fall 2017 will be one of several locations nationwide to host an Evaluation of Pilot Items (EPI) project partnered by ECCHO and NCP program partners. And, you are invited to be a part of the process (plus earn 6 NCP credits for participating)!

Annually the NCP exam developers produce new test questions than can be used in any year since just 20 questions are piloted each exam cycle. This results in a backlog of approved but unpiloted exam questions. ECCHO is scheduling sessions throughout 2017 to evaluate this backlog of questions.
If you are an NCP that passed the exam in the last 4 years (2013-2016), or a new 2017 NCP and wish to participate please click here, select EPCOR Payments Conference and fill out the short form to register!

For more information visit the EPI page on ECCHO's website.
