Alternative Recertification Program

SGMP is introducing a new program for our certified members who have had difficulty in recertifying.  The program is a simple, self-study program and is available to everyone who certified or recertified in the last 3 years and is unable, for various reasons, to earn enough contact hours to recertify.   Members whose recertification date is January 2016 to present are eligible.
Policy GI-11, dated March 2017

  1. You must be a member of SGMP in good standing.
  2. The cost of the alternative recertification program is $250, due at the time of registration.  This includes the updated CGMP Handbook, the current Power Point slides, and the examination.  Click here for a full fee schedule.
  3. This is a self -study program and does not involve any classroom activity. 
  4. The alternative recertification examination will be offered every two months.  You must schedule the examination within 6 months  of registering for the program.  You will be notified of the month of the examination.
  5. Upon successful completion of the exam, your certification is good for 3 years from your most recent expiration date.
