To maintain an active CITP credential, CITP credential holders must pay an annual renewal fee of $350 and meet the following CITP recertification requirements every three years:
- Regular AICPA membership in good standing
- Valid and unrevoked CPA permit, license or certificate (whether active or inactive) issued by a legally constituted state authority
- 60 hours of CPE related to the CITP body of knowledge
- Submission of a signed Statement of Intent to comply with all recertification requirements
Q. When does the initial three-year period for recertification begin?
The period begins at the end of the year you obtain your CITP credential. For example, if you received your CITP credential on December 12, 2009, you will need to complete the recertification requirements by December 31, 2012. You will be required to state your recertification qualifications via an email request. More information about recertification requirements can be found in the CITP Application Kit
Q. What happens if my job changes or other professional or personal circumstances preclude me from meeting the recertification requirements for CITP credential in a timely manner?
If recertification requirements are not met within the specified time period, your CITP certification expires and all initial requirements, excluding the examination, must again be met to regain the credential. Alternatively, credential holders may request to be placed on inactive status. Such a request must be submitted in writing. All requests will be reviewed by the AICPA on a case-by-case basis before a final determination can be made. Submit your request by email or mail.
