Recertification implies making your CBPM® credential valid again before its validity expires in five years. Keeping your CBPM® alive and active through recertification is easy.

How many times can you Recertify for CBPM®
BCI permits unlimited number of recertification chances for CBPM® and your CBPM® qualification can expire only if it has not been “refreshed” once in five years. However, after three years of your CBPM® award, you may well consider upgrading to the CBPL® (Certified BPO People Leader ) certification. You will receive frequent reminders from BCI and other BCI partners on this and there are exciting upgrade offers, which you can grab and get fee discounts.
When to apply for a Recertification for CBPM®
You should apply for recertification at least 8 weeks prior to the date of expiry of your CBPM® certification. This date is mentioned on your CBPM® credential document/certificate. In addition, you receive frequent reminders from BCI to this effect. Please note that if your CBPM® recertification application is NOT received by BCI till two weeks before the expiry of your certification, your recertification request will be only processed as a fresh CBPM® application and you will have to pay the applicable full CBPM® fee.
