Application for CLE Credit

PLEASE NOTE: For NFPA credential renewals (RP® or CRP™), you do not need to apply for NFPA CLE approval if the event was sponsored by an NFPA member association; a state, local, or specialty bar association; any court; a governmental agency (if you are a government employee); the American Alliance of Paralegals; or the National Association of Legal Assistants. NFPA automatically accepts CLE hours awarded by any of the those organizations.
