The Limitless Value of Recertification
Graduates of the Certified Recognition Professionals® (CRP) designation must meet education requirements and pay a recertification fee every three years to maintain their CRP. The recertification fee is $150 for each three-year cycle, and this is paid at the time of recertification.
Recertification objectives require CRP graduates to:
- Demonstrate through professional activities how you have been able to apply RPI Best Practice Standards®
- Continually develop knowledge and skills as a recognition professional through an ongoing commitment to education
The process is to earn and record points in each of two categories – professional activities and professional development. Graduates enter the points on their transcript page by entering the date earned, description of the activity, and number of points earned. The transcript page shows accumulated points for each category, recertification date, total points needed and a summation of points earned to date.
A total of 60 points (20 points per year) in a variety of professional and continuing development areas satisfies the education portion of CRP recertification requirements. If the education and fee requirements are not met, the CRP designation will lapse and expire.
