Transferring Membership

The CMPS Institute allows memberships to be transferred under the following circumstances only:
1. CMPS memberships may only be transferred by uncertified members who have not taken the CMPS exam. The Institute will verify that no exam has been taken.
2. Only the person or company who paid for the initial CMPS membership is allowed to authorize a transfer of membership. For example, if a company paid for a member's membership and that member would like to transfer his membership to another person, CMPS must receive permission from the original member's company for the transfer of membership.
3. All terms stay the same for the 'new' member (same expiration date, same requirements for when renewal is due, etc.)
4. The original CMPS member is responsible for any exchange of curriculum and/or money from the new CMPS member, if any.


4. MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

After you become a registered Member, and after the initial membership period of one month or one year as the case may be, the CMPS Institute automatically charges your credit card each renewal period at the then current membership renewal rate until you cancel your subscription by contacting our office either by phone, email, US mail or other transmission. Membership renewals are auto-charged on the monthly or annual anniversary of your purchase date.  If you cancel your membership prior to the next charge date, your membership will continue through the month and end on the day that coincides with the day of the month of your original registration date. 

Membership fees are not refundable for the initial membership period or any partial month in which a membership is cancelled.

Second and Subsequent Year Membership Continuing Education Requirement

In addition to paying the renewal fee, members must complete four (4) hours of approved Continuing Education (CE) material. The CMPS Institute has approved all of the material in the CMPS Continuing Education Modules and the CMPS curriculum for CE.

Length of Annual Membership Renewals:

Membership renewals for all annual memberships last for 12 months. All membership renewals will be billed 12 months after the due date of your last renewal.  Example: if you register in January of 2014, your membership will expire in January of 2015, regardless of when you pass the CMPS exam.
