Graduates of the Certified Recognition Professionals® (CRP) designation must meet education requirements and pay a $150 recertification fee every three years to maintain their CRP.

Recertification objectives require CRP graduates to:

  • Applied learning from CRP courses demonstrated through professional activities
  • Continually develop knowledge and skills as a recognition professional

Education requirements

A total of 30 points (10 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. See the CRP Recertification Lapsed Policy for more information.

Learn how to track your certification credits to satisfy education requirements in the Professional Development section.

The Process

Start by tracking your certification credits which requires you to complete and then document activities that can be used toward recertification. After you’ve accumulated 30 points in professional and continuing development, you’re ready to submit the recertification fee of $150 for every three-year cycle.
