CMPC ® Recertification Materials Due November 30
Exam Must Be Passed Before Applying | Make Sure to Allow Enough Time!
Dear Certified Mental Performance Consultant ®  (CMPC):
2019 is your CMPC ® recertification year! Please review the outlined requirements and timeline below to prep ahead of the September 1 - November 30 application period. A $25 late fee will be assessed on applications received December 1 - 31.

Recertification procedures are explained in the  Certification Program Candidate Handbook  on pp. 38 - 47. We recommend closely reading these instructions to ensure a smooth review process and higher chance of approval.


  • Proof of passing the CMPC® Certification Exam and submission of complete recertification materials by November 30, 2019. Remember, you must pass the exam BEFORE your application will be accepted. There is a 90-day retest waiting period if a passing score is not achieved on the first attempt. Please plan accordingly so your certification does not lapse!

  • A completed application must include a Continuing Education (CE) Activity Log documenting 30 CEUs accrued during the 5-year period. The CMPC® Recertification Application and CE Activity Log are on the Applications Form page.

After paying the $275 fee, AASP's Certification Manager will email an exam code along with exam scheduling instructions and a link to exam study resources . Note: Exam scores are not made immediately available after testing. AASP's Certification Manager will notify you of the results via email within approximately two weeks.

You are required to fulfill and document 30 CEUs on the CE Activity Log, including two credit hours in each of the *required areas of Ethics, Diversity, and Mentorship/Supervision found on the right side of the CE Activity Log. (*M/S is only for those who wish to continue mentoring students/colleagues.)

CE activities must correspond to the knowledge areas that are representative of the CMPC® Certification Program's content domains. A detailed breakdown of those 30 CEUs is on pp. 45 - 46 of the Candidate Handbook. AASP offers CEU-eligible webinars/virtual conferences ; several options count toward the required areas. Keep your webinar confirmation emails as proof of attending and include them in your recertification application.

Please note that as 2017 was the inaugural year of the new program, only attendance at AASP conferences 2017 - 2019 can be counted for 12 CEUs each. The 2019 AASP Annual Conference will take place October 23-26 in Portland, OR.


In addition to the 12 CE hours you can earn by attending AASP 2019, these additional CE opportunities are available as well. Each program is approved for 3 CEUs. Sign up at time of conference registration.
