Certification renewal


A certification credential shall be in effect for a period of five (5) years from the date of award. Individuals may hold only one certification at a time. Certified property professionals MUST renew ONLY the highest level of certification attained every 5 years. Certification renewal requires proof of continuing education, or evidence of participation in educational activities related to the field of Property Management (i.e., physical inventory, contracts, auditing, receiving, etc.).

  1. Your certification renewal is due 30 days before the expiration date shown on your certificate. Following the due date, there is a 30-day grace period for submission. If you cannot locate your expiration date, please contact
  2. On days 31-120, applications will be accepted, but will be assessed with a $100 late fee.
  3. After 120 days the credential will expire, the certification may no longer be used, and retesting is the only option allowed to recertify. Certification renewal application fees are non-refundable. If you need to retest, do not pay the renewal application fee or complete the Certification Renewal Application. Exams can be purchased here.
