Please note that the CEFP credential must be maintained through a combination of 120 APPA Units that must be earned within a four-year period. If the 120 APPA Units is not attained on or prior to your anniversary renewal date, your CEFP credential will expire immediately. APPA will remove your name from the recognition area on our website and you will not be allowed to use the CEFP designation behind your name and/or title. It will also be necessary to successfully take and pass the CEFP exam in order to attain the CEFP designation again.

Click the APPA Units Matrix icon button to view how your required 120 APPA Units can be earned every four (4) years.
