The premier organization for TDM professionals

Recertification

Once you pass the TDM-CP exam, you are expected to earn a minimum of 60 credits per two-year period (30 credits in Industry Leadership and 30 credits in Professional Development).

Review the recertification activities lists in the handbook to see the numerous ways in which you can earn credits.  You are required to track and provide documentation for points you submit.  It is recommended that monitor your recertification activities and report them in your Prolydian account on an ongoing basis to ensure you receive recertification. If you already earned your TDM-CP, soon we will distribute instructions on how to create your Prolydian account to allow you to track your recertification points.

You can view information on webinars and conferences that you have registered for by logging in to your profile on the ACT website. Within your profile, click on the Activities tab – just look under the “CE” column.
