Application Guidance

This guidance sets out the process and requirements that you have to follow when submitting your application to ACP. For you to achieve Certified Carbon Professional (CCP) recognition you will need to complete the ACP Professional Application Process.

Application Process
The applicant makes a submission to the ACP Professional Certification Board (PCB) who conducts an initial review and provides any feedback if required to the applicant. Candidates will then be asked to participate in an interview. A report from this interview will be made back to the PCB. They will then forward a recommendation to ACP’s Board of Directors who will ratify the decision and you will be notified of the result. The schematic diagram below outlines the process:


Documentation for applicants
Applicants must submit the following documentation: 

1. Application form
2. Evidence pack consisting of:

  • Career Overview Report
  • Mandatory Competence Attainment Report
  • Evidence of participation in a Professional Development Scheme (If appropriate)
  • Training and CPD record
  • Copies of qualifications
  • Copies of Professional membership/s or qualification/s

I) Application Form
You should complete the application form in full and ensure that both you and your sponsors have signed the appropriate sections. Click here to download the application form. Please print, complete in black ink and post us along with copies of all required supporting documents.

II) Career Overview Report (no more than 1000 words)
The ACP requires the Career Overview Report you submit to cover the following 6 key areas: duration of employment, job title, employer, roles and responsibilities, your involvement in making key decisions and recommendations, key learning topics*. Your report should give an overview of the work for which you have had responsibility, your job roles and progression through your career, including any career breaks. You need to identify any experiential learning that may be relevant to each registration being sought.

*A key learning topic is one gained in the workplace as part of your working career and should be highlighted in the text of your report.

III) Mandatory Competence Attainment Report (no more than 4000 words)
You need to provide a response to each of the Mandatory Competences in the pro-forma report available on the ACP website. The maximum number of words for the report is 4000; the distribution between individual competences will be at your discretion. Appendices, references and footnotes will not be accepted. You need to use examples from your practical experience to demonstrate the appropriate level of achievement for each competence. Essential images and diagrams should be included to support responses in the pro-forma. Your responses need to be written in the first person and identify your roles and responsibilities, what you have done and what you have learned. If you were part of a team you need to identify what you personally did, describing your contribution to the overall aim of the specific project or piece of work. You normally need to provide two examples that demonstrate the appropriate level of attainment for each Mandatory Competence. The Competence report is your opportunity to demonstrate that you are working at a level appropriate to the registration/s for which you are applying.
