COVID-19 AND CMPP™ CERTIFICATION

NEW!!!  COVID-19 RECERTIFICATION POLICY FOR 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISMPP is extending the time for CMPPs to recertify via exam by 1 year, or until the end of 2021. This applies only to CMPPs with a certification expiry of 12/31/2020. This is a one-time extension and will not alter the certification cycle.

Therefore, if you recertify via exam in 2021 for a 2020 expiration, your next certification cycle still expires in 2023. 

CMPPs who recertify via credit do not have an extended time to recertify.

COVID-19 Impact on March 2020 CMPP Exam Window – Your Questions Answered!

The March 1-31, 2020 CMPP examination window has been impacted by factors associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. Many test centers around the globe have closed, and many exam appointments have been cancelled by Pearson Vue, ISMPP's testing partner.
