A CMSP certification is valid for four years. After those four years, each CMSP interested in retaining their designation must recertify. You can recertify even if your expiration date was several years ago.  Simply use the the last four years as your dates of activity for recertification. 

Recertification is an easy process.  Click below for the recertification application that summarizes your work experience and continuing education, including conference/event participation for the last four years and submit the application to Carol Dwyer at cdwyer@NTSA.orgThe fee for the four year recertification is $200.
