To ensure that credential holders maintain their skills and expand their base of knowledge and expertise, the CWDP credential must be renewed every three (3) years.  

Recertification applications must be submitted prior to the CWDP expiration date. NAWDP offers a thirty (30) day grace period for those needing additional time to complete their recertification paperwork.  However, CWDP certifications become inactive after that 30-day period.

If the CWDP credential holder has not been awarded recertification within one-year of its expiration date, the initial certification application process must be followed in order to renew the CWDP designation.

Applicants for recertification will be notified in writing of the results of their application within thirty (30) days. If denied recertification, the applicant will be given an opportunity to appeal the decision within thirty (30) days of notification. All appeals must be received in writing.

The Recertification application is available for download here.  Once you have completed all the required fields, please scan it and save to your computer. Then upload the PDF file and submit through the Submit my Recertification Application. (NOTE: applications mailed will not be reviewed).

Important: Complete the Payment Form in the packet so we know if you are paying by check, money order or credit card.  Credit Card transactions may be completed on-line and Checks or Money Orders should be made payable to NAWDP and mailed to:
