Certification in the activities field helps professionals establish a framework for practice so that they can provide the best possible experience for their residents.
As a MEPAP 2nd Edition instructor, I provide a training program approved by the National Certification Council for Activity Professionals (NCCAP). The program is taught in 2 parts and runs in a fall and spring session. For more information about the program, see the sidebar.
I took both MEPAP classes with Tim Anderson and I couldn’t be happier. He is hands down the best teacher I have ever had. His classes are so unique and nothing like I experienced before. His teaching styles vary depending on the topic we’re discussing so it’s really fun to go to class every week, we never know what to expect!
He mirrors what we learn in textbooks into real life scenarios which is beneficial to our career. You cannot learn what Tim teaches you through job trainings. Taking his class taught me so much about the beginning of the Activity Professional world to where it is today. His class covers a wide spectrum of knowledge that is beneficial to dealing with various population types, which is very helpful, since the Activity Professional world is always changing.
There’s not one person I wouldn’t recommend to take his class. From taking this class I can easily say that it prepared me to take the national exam, and to be the Activity Professional I am today.

I truly believe this class has helped me in SO many ways, even though I've been an acting activity director for 12 years, there are so many things I was never taught, as well as the up to date info that everyone should
Thank you Tim! You are an amazing person who truly cares for others, and the best teacher for this course. Thank you for your "every step of the way" attitude and advice!! I highly recommend this course for anyone considering the activity profession as a career, or anyone already in this field as there is much to learn. Thanks again Tim!!
