Congratulations on passing the CDM Credentialing Exam!
Now that you have passed the exam, you must take the next step of activating your CDM, CFPP credential within one year of the date that you passed the exam. Failure to do so will result in your certification being terminated. To be eligible for certified status again, you must submit a new exam application with fees for review and approval, meet the current eligibility requirements, and receive a passing score on the exam.
You are not certified until you activate your certification.
Activate your certification and join the ranks of CDM, CFPPs. After your certification activation application and payment are processed, you will receive your official certificate within about three to four weeks. To retain your CDM, CFPP credential, you must pay the annual certification fee and meet the certification maintenance requirements. For details on maintaining your credential, refer to the CBDM Guide to Maintaining Your CDM, CFPP Credential.
You cannot begin earning and reporting continuing education (CE) hours toward the recertification requirement until you activate your certification. You can only complete and report CE hours while your certification is active.
