Our CMDSM and CMDSS certifications must be renewed every three years. Normally, if you fail to renew by your renewal date, you would have to register for, take and pass the exam again to reacquire your credentials. However, we are currently offering a 35th Anniversary program that will allow you to regain your certification without testing again. The only two requirements are to pay a $35 renewal fee and submit a renewal application along with documentation for experience points claimed. We are not reducing the requirement that you to document 30 points that you have earned within the last three years. If approved, your certification will be valid until the end of the year (12/31/16) at which time you will need to go through the normal renewal process again. Following that renewal at the end of the year your certification will be valid for another three year period. This special offer does not provide a big financial savings but it does allow you to avoid taking the test again. This program will only be available for the next 90 days. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or help with documenting your points.
