CJCP certification is a three year period from the date of a candidate successfully completing and passing the examination. To maintain certification, CJCP professionals are required to maintain 30 CJCP credit hours within the 3 year certification period. The total 30 hours could be JCR education activities and could consist of CJCP webinars, live events (face-to-face learning), custom education programs, JCAccess content, QSN broadcasts, audio-conferences, or CSR Programs for CSR Members. At a minimum, a CJCP needs to obtain 20 CJCP credit hours exclusively from JCR events. The remaining 10 credit hours may be acquired from non-JCR events and effective January 1, 2018 are at the discretion of the CJCP professional (please see full CJCP recertification requirements for details or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org).
If a CJCP does not have at least 30 CJCP credit hours at the end of the 3-year certification period, he/she loses certification until he/she attains at least 10 credit hours and successfully completes the CJCP recertification exam in the same 12-month period. These 10 credit hours must be exclusively from JCR programs/events.
Although it is not required, CJCP’s are encouraged to acquire 10 CJCP credit hours per year rather acquiring all 30 in one year. This is recommended to maintain current knowledge/skills.
