Inside PPAI | Community 2020 CAS And MAS Certifications Due For Renewals This Year AS A RULE, CAS AND MAS certifications must be renewed every three years to maintain certification status. This means that anyone who took advantage of free certifications that were offered in 2020 will have to go through the process of renewal before the end of 2023, if they have not already. PPAI is the promotional products industry’s home for comprehensive professional development and education. This requires that the Association constantly works to update its education offerings and certification requirements to ensure that the content remains relevant and accurate. “The promotional products industry is not static, and so PPAI takes seriously the process of updating and evolving its industry education,” says Jill Begun, professional development manager at PPAI. “CAS and MAS certifications are impressive accomplishments, but in order for them to hold their value, the Association requires that individuals renew their credentials every three years to keep up with new developments to the promo world.” Renewal requires 30 credits. Individuals can begin the process by going to my.ppai.org and clicking on “Certification Transcript.” This allows users to see their credits and track their progress. Once a user has the required credits, they will need to register for and submit the Recertification Application, which can be found under the PPAI Certification option in the online portal.
