Provider Renewal

Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Renewal Program Overview

To ensure that Pediatric Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Providers stay current in their knowledge of safe chemotherapy and biotherapy administration, APHON requires active Providers to renew their status every two years after the completion and passing of their initial provider exam.

If you are unsure about the expiration date of your provider status, please send an inquiry to the APHON Education Team at with the name under which you initially received your status and your provider number. Our team can assist in looking up your expiration.

Please be aware that, although APHON makes efforts to notify providers of their expiring status, it remains the responsibility of providers to maintain and renew their status promptly. Keeping your information up-to-date and regularly reviewing your provider card is the most effective way to prevent your status from lapsing. Additionally, we strongly recommend storing a copy of your NCPD certificates and provider card on a hard drive or a cloud-based storage system. Individual providers are responsible for the maintenance and storage of NCPD documentation and completion records.

2024 Renewal Exam General Information

The 2024 Provider Renewal Exam is scheduled to commence on October 1st, 2024, and will be available for completion until December 15th, 2024. APHON will initiate communication with expiring providers towards the end of August or the beginning of September. If your status is set to expire, and you intend to renew in 2024, please be attentive to our reminder postcard in September and the emails we send out.

The Renewal Exam is a 90-minute, open-note, online assessment comprising 25 questions, and it is accessible at any point during the renewal season. Participants are granted two attempts to successfully pass the exam, thereby renewing their status for a two-year duration. In the event that a participant is unable to pass the exam after two attempts, it will be necessary for them to retake the initial 2-day provider course to reinstate their status.

Additional information will be provided as we approach the 2024 renewal season. In the meantime, if you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the education team at
