The CCXP credential requires ongoing professional development to maintain an active certification status. As such, certificants are required to complete 20 hours of continuing education units (CEUs) in order to renew their certification every two years. The renewal date of the new certificate will be two years from the expiration date of the last certificate issued.
One CEU is earned for each hour (60 minutes) spent in a planned, structured professional development activity. CEUs will be accepted for the certification renewal requirement as long they are directly related to the CCXP Exam Blueprint and meet the guidelines listed below. A maximum of 10 CEUs will be applied from each professional development activity category towards the 20 CEUs required for renewal. CEUs accumulate for a two-year period starting immediately after the certification is issued and cannot be carried over to the next two-year timeframe or be transferred to another person. Courses taken more than one time during the two-year renewal cycle will be given credit only once.
