DMCP Program


DMCPs are required to renew their certification every five years. To be recertified, DMCPs must earn a minimum of 50 points on the DMCP Recertification Application. Candidates must earn a minimum of ten points in each of three sections of the application. The DMCP Recertification Application and fee of $200 US is due to the DMCP Program Office no later than 31 July with an additional $100 penalty for all applications received between 1 August and 31 December of the year of certification expiration.


Note: For the purpose of recertification, all DMCP® designations are valid through December 31 of the 5th year following the test date. For example, your certification expires on December 31, 2014 if you received your DMCP® at any time during 2009. You should then apply for recertification prior to July 31, 2014.


For more information, see the detailed DMCP Recertification instructions.

To recertify, download the DMCP Recertification Application which is in Acrobat Form Savable format.  Please save your form with your name in the filename. Please note that all forms must be submitted electronically.
