All professionals who are granted the Certified Retail Real Estate Professional (CRRP) certification will be required to demonstrate continued competence and active industry engagement by renewing their credentials every three years.
Effective January 1, 2019, Certified Retail Real Estate Professionals are assigned a three-year certification maintenance interval during which they must earn a total of at least 10 professional development credits through relevant industry activities. This includes continuing education (events and courses), industry service (volunteer leadership and speaking/authoring engagements) and/or professional recognition (awards and credentials).
A typical maintenance period is a three-year cycle. If you received your designation in March of 2022 you will be up for renewal in April of 2024.
*Due to COVID-19, all designees prior to December 2021 will have a two-year extension to accrue their continuing education credits. For example, the first cycle of designees will be up for renewal on January 1, 2024. So, these designees can accrue credits for all eligible events and activities from January 2019 through December 2023.
