IPMA-Canada Re-Certification

Re-certification is an integral component of IPMA-Canada’s new International Certification Program. Certified members must demonstrate their commitment to and involvement in their ongoing professional development in order to retain their professional designation.

IPMA-Canada has identified several areas of continuing education and leadership activity through which certification may be maintained. Given the rapidly changing environment of human resource management, continual professional development activities are essential.

To retain the International Personnel Management Association Advanced Certified Professional (IPMA-ACP), the Certified Professional (IPMA-CP), and/or the Executive (IPMA-EX) designation an individual must accumulate 50 points every three years and submit a completed ipma-canada-re-certification-application to the National Office of IPMA-Canada.

At least 30 of the points must be accumulated in total from any of the following areas:

  • Certification-2Professional Development Programs,
  • Service in a Leadership Capacity,
  • Presentation and Professional Development Delivery,
  • Publications,
  • Human Resource Innovations,
  • Membership, and
  • Mentoring/Student Practicums.

At least 20 points must be achieved in experiential learning to satisfy the recertification requirements. You may begin earning points toward recertification immediately upon receiving your initial IPMA-ACP/IPMA-CP/IPMA-EX designation. Points cannot be carried over for a future recertification.
