iTPA Re-Certification Information
TPT, CTPS and MTPS tennis fitness certifications all require re-certification every other year. Note re-certification payment of $49 is required, in addition to members obtaining your designation level's required CPE hours. You DO NOT have to re-take the exam. Members will be billed at the end of the year, with 1 mailing 30 days days out, in addition to emails. Re-certification payment of $49 is required by December 31st (regardless of level). *Note: You DO NOT need to email or send iTPA proof of professional continuing education credits unless you have been sent an email saying you are being audited (20% of members chosen at random). If you are chosen to be audited, you will be notified by the iTPA by April 15 of the following year after re-certification renewal, and at that time must produce proof of CPEs.
You can either instruct us (via writing or an email) to charge the original credit card you used to register for the certification level, use a new card or mail the iTPA a check.
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is an important, well recognized, valued component of maintaining and developing knowledge and skills within a profession. As a leading tennis-specific association with the mission to support its members and generate a culture of professionalism, life-long learning and excellence, the iTPA has developed a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Model for certified members.
The goal of the CPE model is increasing the professionalism of the industry, improve the quality of athlete performance and provide employers with the knowledge and assurances that an iTPA certified member is continually striving for knowledge and is maintaining the highest level of specific skills in the tennis performance and fitness industry.
The level of CPE activity required is based on an earned credits process, whereby credits are awarded for activities that will develop the specific coaching/ training/testing skills, knowledge and understanding of the professional and also those which will further the professional fields of health/fitness/wellness/strength & conditioning/ sports medicine throughout the tennis industry.

You don't need to send proof of CPEs to the iTPA with re-certification payment. However, you will be required to check a box stating you have completed the required hours and you must maintain that year's records for 1 year. The iTPA will randomly audit 20% of certified members each year for these materials. If you are chosen to be audited, you will be notified by the iTPA by April 15 of the following year and at that time must produce proof of CPEs.
*Note: If you are joint certified, you will only be charged for your higher designation, not for both.
