Certification renewals will be valid for ONE YEAR. NOTE: Please circle TRANSFER  or RENEWAL here to indicate the use of this form.

PRO Continuing Education Requirements 

PRO measures continuing education in PRO Units.  One hour of approved continuing education earns one PRO Unit. Twelve (12) PRO Units are required for Certification renewal each year.  PRO offers a variety of approved options to meet this requirement, including in-person affiliate-based meetings and training sessions.  Seminars provided by PRO members that build industry knowledge are accepted as long as they are not product specific training.

Of the 12 required PRO Units

  • Six (6) PRO Units are required that are seminar/classroom based, either in person or virtual, on topics directly related to your Certification.
  • Up to Three (3) PRO Units may be provided by subscription to and reading of industry related Trade Publications.
  • Up to Six (6) PRO Units for writing an article or blog post for Trade Publications or PRO Website.

The requirements and conditions of certification are set by the PRO Certification Board.  This board is composed of members from each PRO Affiliate to establish uniform requirements and conditions on the PRO, Inc Education Committee level. Your new certification will be issued and administered by your local PRO Affiliate by the authority granted from the PRO Certification Board.
