CMRP and CMRT certificants must meet recertification requirements during the three year certification cycle to retain certified status for each subsequent three-year cycle. Certificants must acquire 50 course hours from a combination of two or more activities as described in the Recertification Activities Categories section of the Recertification Handbook. Certificants begin receiving recertification reminders one year from the date of certification expiration.
To recertify, certificants must:
- Complete the applicable recertification application within 90 days of their CMRP or CMRT certification expiration date.
- Pay all applicable fees; individuals age 65 and older may waive the fee. A certificant who does not recertify within 90 days of their CMRP or CMRT certification expiration date is considered expired and must retake the applicable exam. If the candidate fails the exam for renewal purposes, he or she will not have his or her certification renewed.
