CGC Adds Requirement for Guardianship Certificants and Applicants

Effective September 1, 2014, CGC is requiring all current NCGs and NMGs, as well as new applicants, to adhere to the revised NGA Standards of Practice. The revised Rules & Regulations are available on the CGC website for review. In addition, a PDF of the NGA Standards of Practice can be viewed here.

All certified guardians will be held to these revised Standards. In particular, disciplinary procedures will now include adherence to the revised NGA Standards of Practice.
