Whether you hold an IPMA-SCP or IPMA-CP certification, you must accumulate 50 recertification points every three (3) years and submit a completed Criteria for Recertification Form.

You can start earning points toward recertification immediately after receiving your initial IPMA-HR certification; however, points cannot be carried over for future recertification.

Time to Get Recertified

If you were certified in 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016, then it’s time to get recertified!
