The Certification Council supports the ongoing professional development of its certificants. To support this purpose, the recertification requirements require continuing education and professional activities that enhance ongoing professional development, recognize learning opportunities, and provide a process for attaining and recording professional achievements.
To maintain use of the CMPC® credential, certification must be renewed every five years. For certificants who are required to recertify between 2017-2021, a prorated system for the designated number of CEUs has been created based on the individual’s recertification year and can be found on pp. 44 of the Candidate Handbook. (2019 - 30 CEUs; 2020 - 45 CEUs; 2021 - 60 CEUs)
The recertification period occurs annually from September 1 to November 30. Recertification applications will only be accepted during that time (and during the late period December 1-31 with a $25 late fee and longer application review timeline).
