Continuing Certification Program (CCP) Due Dates and Fees

The 2023 CCP dates will be posted soon! Check back in late 2022. 


HMDCB offers a 6-year certification cycle, with an opportunity to apply for renewal in certificants’ 5th or 6th year of the certification renewal period. Candidates eligible for renewal may benefit from recertifying early to take advantage of the two (2) opportunities HMDCB provides to recertify before their expiration date. If candidates apply in their 5th year, they are able to reapply for recertification before their certificate expires if they are not successful during their first attempt. All components of HMDCB's Continuing Certification Program must be completed before submitting an application to take the recertification examination. 

A new six-year period will begin on your original recertification date after you successfully pass the examination in either the fifth or sixth year of your renewal cycle. The following schedule applies:Certification Expiration Dates

HMDCB's Continuing Certification Program Candidate Handbook provides detailed information on the entire continuing certification process, from eligibility requirements to the recertifying exam. Review the 2022 CCP Handbook.
