If you are currently a Certified member and three years have passed since the date of your ASDP exam, you must apply for an ASDP recertification. Once we approve your application and receive the nominal recertification fee, you will enjoy an extra three-year period of Re-certified status. Every six years after passing an ASDP exam, you will need to take the full training session, which is modified regularly to reflect contemporary changes within the field.
A member must enter at least three items (or evidence) indicating that you meet the requirements. One only needs to provide acceptable evidence that meets three or more requirements, but feel free to offer extra evidence via email.
Step 1: Click here to open the recertification request form and log into your member profile; ensure that the email address on your profile is accurate.
Step 2: Fill out the online form by typing or pasting the required evidence. Please include event names and dates. You do not need to attach documents to the form. The email address on this form must match your profile’s email address.
Step 3: If you prefer to provide additional evidence in PDF or other document formats, you must still complete the form and pay; please send any attachments to Education@asdp.us from the email account that matches your profile’s email address.

“I am the VP of Supply Chain for a company that builds automation and tooling for aerospace. We recently went from being a small business to being classified as large overnight. In order to satisfy the flow down requirements of our customers, we needed to get training on how to properly establish this protocol within our organization. This class was very helpful in getting us on the way.”
“I am so thankful my organization values our Small Business Diversity program and encouraged us to take this course! I could not have asked for a better learning experience! I have been a designated Small Business Liaison Officer for seven years now and there was a great mix of refresher material and new material that I don't deal with all of the time; plus, they highlighted new and upcoming changes! Best 2 1/2 days of training!!!”
“This is the most extensive, beneficial training I have attended to date as it pertains to my role as Small Business Liaison Officer. So glad I found ASDP!!”

“My 4th time re-certifying. I always learn something new. The trainers are great and the subjects pertinent and well presented. Great networking options, as well.”
“The classroom instruction fostered focus on the material and dialog with other students. In-depth discussions and problem solving while in a group setting was very stimulating. The instructors were seasoned practitioners with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
