  1. I have my cpdp or workshop certificate and also my wcea result yet when I upload my cpdp certificate for licence renewal, nmcn will reject my renewal indicating I upload my mcpdp certificate. Am confused as I paid #20,000 for the workshop and got my certificate why then is it been rejected. Please kindly assist.

    • Hi Nnenna,
      Sorry to hear about that. Why don’t you upload your WCEA to apply for license renewal. A lot of changes are taking place regarding license renewal and verification. I am yet to fully confirm if CPDP is still acceptable.
