When there is compelling evidence that a CPE student(s), CPE program, supervisor’s colleagues or self is in immediate danger because of the functioning of any person authorized to supervise by ACPE, the Executive Director shall enjoin the person from supervisory practice for 72 hours.
During this period, the Executive Director of ACPE shall appoint an Emergency Review Committee of four additional persons, as follows: 1) the member’s Regional Director or Regional Chair, 2) Regional Certification or Regional Accreditation Chair, 3) ACPE President or President-elect, 4) Certification Commission or Professional Ethics Commission chair.
This panel shall investigate the concern. Should the panel determine by majority vote that a student(s), CPE program, supervisor’s colleagues or self is endangered, it is authorized to suspend credentials for up to sixty days, pending a competency review by the Regional Certification Committee and/or action by the PEC. The Executive Director shall notify the administrative person responsible for the ACPE program of any actions taken under this provision. In the event of the unavailability of the Executive Director, the ACPE President shall assume this role.
