Once you've achieved the CPP designation, you will need to accumulate and submit 15 continuing education units every three years to maintain your certification status. CPP's eligible for recertification will receive three notices on the year they are due to recertify, two by email and one by mail.
Unfortunately, if you are unable to fulfill one of the recertification requirements (15 CEUs or pass the CPP Exam) within your recertification period, your certification will be discontinued. To apply for an extension or request additional information or assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
