The Core Curriculum is spread out during Phase I and Phase II, and is designed to provide a consistent baseline of knowledge and information for our aspirants. The curriculum is comprised of video presentations and the aspirant is required to write a response to the reflection questions provided by the presenter that is uploaded to their portfolio. The video recordings are introductory in nature and are designed so that the training ACPE Certified Educator can build upon them.

All of the videos are located on the ACPE Certification Process SharePoint Page (log-in required).
