CERTIFICATION DEADLINE EXTENSIONS

Certified Park and Recreation Professional (CPRP) and Certified Park and Recreation Executive (CPRE) 3/1/2021 extensions

The National Certification Board has instated a temporary extension policy for CPRP's and CPRE's who expire March 1, 2021.  

Due to the current challenging circumstances, NRPA and the National Certification Board will extend Certified Park and Recreation Professional (CPRP) or Certified Park and Recreation Executive (CPRE) certification expiration dates by six months upon request, from 3/1/2021, to 9/1/2021. Certified professionals who are granted an extension will maintain a new certification cycle beginning and ending in September. Certified professionals who have already received an extension from 9/1/2020 to 3/1/2021 are not eligible for an additional extension unless granted through appeal. Eligible parties must request an extension online through the My NRPA tab in your NRPA Profile by May 31, 2021. Please email certification@nrpa.org for more information.
