Submission of CE credits is required to maintain your certification. To obtain your CE credits, please follow these steps:

Congratulations on earning a Certified Contingent Workforce Professional (CCWP) credential! Now it’s time for you to maintain your credential through ongoing participation in contingent workforce professional education events. 

CCWP Contingent Workforce Program Management and SOW Management certifications are initially valid for three years. To maintain your CCWP certification, you must earn a total of 24 CE credits during this three-year certification timeframe. We recommend a minimum goal of 8 CE credits per year. Those who fulfill the CE requirements within the three-year renewal period do not need to retake the CCWP Certification class and exam to renew their certification.

The purpose of CCWP Continuing Education (CE) is to encourage certified individuals to stay current on the evolving knowledge, expertise, and trends around contingent workforce program and SOW management best practices.


CCWP CE requirements must be completed to maintain your CCWP certified status. If your three-year, CCWP Certification period ends, your CCWP certification status is considered expired, and you will need to get recertified.  

If your CCWP Certification has expired, please reach out to our CCWP team to review available options and fees to complete the CCWP Recertification process for CCWP Certified Professionals.
