The National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners Council was formed to promote standards of excellence in dementia and Alzheimer's disease education to healthcare professionals, front line staff, caregivers, volunteers and First Responders who provide services to dementia clients

NetCE is the leading provider of high-quality evidence-based continuing education designed to assist healthcare professionals to raise their levels of expertise while fulfilling their licensing and certification requirements. NetCE's online curricula include topics on geriatric care, including Alzheimer Disease, Aging and Long-Term Care, Geriatric Polypharmacy, and Geriatric Failure to Thrive. These topics, and more, will be available to NCCDP members. In support of improving patient care, NetCE is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team. Our activities are planned by and for the healthcare team to support learning and change.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau data for 2015, 26% of adults older than 65 years of age, and 50% of those older than 75 years of age, report at least one disability. Among common causes of disability in the elderly is dementia, the prevalence of which approximately doubles every 10 years after 60 years of age. By 2030 there will be more people over the age of 75 than under the age of 30. Therefore, it is imperative that all healthcare providers and frontline staff, worldwide, are offered the opportunity to complete a comprehensive dementia education curriculum with the opportunity to receive dementia care certification through NCCDP. Sandra Stimson, CEO and Founder of NCCDP and ICCDP states, "Most countries do not have national standards regarding dementia education and that is not acceptable. Throughout the USA, regulations are different state to state and industry by industry, with no standardization requirement for dementia education for all staff. Healthcare professionals can now obtain ongoing comprehensive health care related education right from the privacy of their home."

NCCDP sister company is the International Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners which offers two globally recognized online certifications: Certified Montessori Dementia Care Professional CMDCP and a 6- hour course provided by Center for Applied Research in Dementia which was developed by Dr. Cameron Camp. The other certification is CDP certification and an online 7- hour Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care seminar. See for details.

NCCDP's online training site, powered by NetCE, offers more than 1000 hours of continuing education across 13 education categories, including subject-specific mandated content for re-licensure and recertification. You can access the NCCDP site at
