The CTSP Recertification Process

It is imperative that employees continue to develop their knowledge and expertise in safety, which is why the CTSP Council believes that the CTSP should continue to develop and improve his/her professionalism through constant learning and growth, through teaching others and through the actual implementation of CTSP’s teachings.


To maintain CTSP, candidates must obtain 30 CEUs during their three-year recertification period and submit a renewal fee every three years. Member Renewal fee is $125.00 and Non-Member Renewal fee is $250.00.

CTSPs must obtain CEUs in three (3) Mandatory Categories:
