Certification Emeritus (Lifetime) Requirements
National Property Management Association (NPMA) certification offers a lifetime certification (Emeritus) status for those individuals who are no longer employed in the Property Management profession but who have a current valid NPMA certification at the time of application.
The Emeritus certification status does not have to be renewed and is valid as long as the certificant does not desire to use the original certification designation. If the Emeritus certificant desires to depict certification on any official document, “Emeritus” must be included with the certification level (i.e. CPPA, Emeritus)
