Recertification Information

Stay current and demonstrate your professional status by maintaining your certifications.

The CHRS, CWCP, CLRL, and CFMLS certifications are valid until December 31st of the second year after initial certification or the last recertification. For example, a CWCP earned in May of 2018 would be valid until December 31st of 2020. After recertifying in 2020, the certification would be valid until December 31st of 2022.

You may apply for recertification at any time during the year in which your certification expires. To avoid a lapse in certification, we encourage you to apply for recertification by December 1st of the year that your certification will expire.

THE DEADLINE FOR RECERTIFYING FOR 2017 IS NOW PASSED

If you would like to recertify for 2017, you can do so up to 6 months after the December 31, 2017 deadline, with a $50 late fee assessed. Recertifying 6-12 months after certification expires results in a $100 late fee. After 12 months your certification will lapse and you will need to re-take the program and pass the exam in order to be certified once again.

To apply for late recertification, download and fill out the CHRS/CWCP/CFMLS Application for Recertification form or the CLRL Application for Recertification form and mail it with supporting documentation and payment to Carrie Mejorado at:
