National Resource Center for Youth Services: Residential Child and Youth Care Professional Certification


The University of Oklahoma National Resource Center for Youth Services considers the health and safety of our participants, community, and staff are of the utmost importance. With the everchanging conditions with COVID-19 it is difficult to schedule in-person training very far in advance. We will continue to utilize virtual training as a primary delivery method with limited in-person training when it can be offered safely. Please check our website regularly or join our mailing list for updates on our event schedules.

RCYCP Exam Instructions

Registering yourself as a trainee

If your trainer has already registered you and NRCYS has received payment, you are ready to take the test.

If you are registering yourself, visit the Trainee Registration page.

  1. Complete all fields and select your agency from the dropdown menu. If you have a question about which agency to select, verify this with your trainer.
  2. Select "Submit" to complete your registration.

Taking the test

After your training hours are logged in as completed and NRCYS receives payment for your testing, you will receive an email to the address you entered.

Once you receive your login ID to take the test, follow these instructions very carefully. You may only take the test twice on your user ID, so do not begin to take the test unless you have at least TWO HOURS to complete it. If you experience difficulties and need to reset your testing ID, check with your trainer. (Note: you must have JavaScript enabled on your web browser to take the test. This is usually a default setting.)
