The Certification Continuation Program (CCP) is intended to promote, encourage, and reward practitioners who demonstrate continued efforts to carry the competencies needed at initial certification throughout their careers. CCP requires AMT certified members to document activities supporting continuation of AMT certification every three years.

Who is Required to Comply with CCP?
Individuals initially certified on or after January 1, 2006 are required to comply with CCP every three years.
Individuals certified prior to January 1, 2006 (excluding individuals listed above) are NOT required to participate; however, AMT strongly encourages all members to keep abreast in their field through continuing education and other professional activities.
How Does The Program Work?
1. Depending on the certification, a member will be required to obtain a certain number of points over a three-year period:
- 30 points every three years for RMA, CMAS, RDA, CMLA and AHI certifications
- 20 points every three years for RPT certifications
- 45 points every three years for MT, MLT, and CLC certifications
2. Points are earned through traditional continuing education (CE). Points can also be earned through satisfactory employment in the field, formal education, professional education, authoring written works, instructional presentations, and other similar activities.

3. Every three years, affected members will receive a notification regarding CCP compliance and will be asked to attest to attaining the required number of points. A sample attestation form is attached (Download). AMT recommends that members track their professional activities in AMTrax throughout the three-year cycle and not wait until they are notified. Individuals who track and meet their required number of points through AMTrax will not receive the notification.
4. No documentation will need to be submitted to AMT on an ongoing basis. However, each year AMT will perform a random audit. Those who are chosen for an audit must produce documentation to support the certification continuation activities attested to. AMT recommends that members keep supporting documentation in a file so that they can be fully prepared to submit to AMT, if requested. Please note acceptable forms of documentation (Click here).
5. Certified members who do not meet CCP requirements, or those who are audited and do not provide supporting documentation, are considered “Non Compliant” and will have their membership and certification revoked.
6. There are no fees associated with CCP specifically, although the annual renewal fee is still required.
