I have taken the IMPACT clinic but I cannot find my certificate, what happens now?
The national office does not re-issue IMPACT certificates. To get credit for IMPACT towards your CAP certification you will need to have your region contact the national office directly with your IMPACT information. If the region office does not have your IMPACT information, you will have to re-take the course. If you took the course online with the National Office, please contact email@example.com with a date of when you took the IMPACT.
