Certification Renewal

Your CPTN certification status is due for renewal each year or every 2 years. You require 7 CECs to renew for 1-Year or 14 CECs to renew for 2-Years. One hour of continuing education equals 1 CPTN CEC up to a maximum of 14 CECs for courses that are preapproved for CPTN credits. We prohibit the banking of CECs. As such extra/unused credits will not be carried over to the next recertification period. This ensures that all trainers take full advantage of the maximum available credits for their renewal period and that our trainers education background remains current at all times.

CEC Petition

Courses that are not listed on the Online Courses and Workshops page or not preapproved can be Petitioned for CECs.

Note: A maximum of 7 CPTN CECs is awarded to petitioned courses/events. A processing fee of $15 CAD + HST per course is applied. A non-CPTN conference event which consists of various sessions just requires a single petition.

Membership Renewal

We thank our on-going supporters whom are interested in maintaining their affiliation but have no interest in becoming certified. Certified trainers are exempted but are encouraged to renew their certifications to maintain their designations.
