NOTE; As per the CCPDT Recertifying requirements at www.ccpdt.org under “About Us” – “Public Policies” – “Recertification” – “Recertification Requirements” –
Calculating CEUs
If a course has been granted 4 CBCC-KA CEUs, 2 CPDT-KA CEUs and 1 CPDT-KSA CEU the following CEU’s would be earned toward recertification:

  • CBCC-KA would earn a total of 4 CEUs towards CBCC-KA recertification;
  • CPDT-KA would earn 7 CEU’s towards CPDT-KA recertification (4 CBCC-KA, 2 CPDT-KA and 1 CPDT-KSA);
  • CPDT-KSA would earn 6 CEU’s towards the CPDT-KA portion of their recertification (4 CBCC-KA and 2 CPDT-KA) and 1 CEU towards their KSA portion of the recertification. If that certificant had already obtained sufficient CPDT-KSA CEUs, the CPDT-KSA CEU would be applied toward the CPDT-KA requirement;
  • CBCC-KA/CPDT-KA(KSA) would earn 4 CEUs towards their CBCC-KA recertification and 3 towards their CPDT-KA(KSA) recertification.
