Why should I renew my National Phlebotomy Certification (CPT)

To maintain your CPT certification, you’ll need to renew it every two years. This will ensure employers you are continuing your education in the field.

When you need to renew, you should prepare to do it at least 14-30 days prior to your expiration date. This will help you avoid any additional reinstatement fees.

Whether you’ve been certified with National Performance Specialists or not, you can renew your CPT certification with us.

What we offer

In our CPT certification renewal program, you will receive study materials and practice exams, all included free. Individuals holding certifications from other certification organizations may become NPS certified, provided they meet NPS’s eligibility criteria, and successfully pass NPS’s certification exam. NPS certified phlebotomists may be eligible to renew using CEU credits. Please review the complete CEU renewal eligibility requirements in the NPS Candidate Handbook.

With our automated system, you can receive same-day certification once you complete the CEU credits. Complete the renewal program at your own pace, within one year from the day of registration. Additionally, you can complete verifications as soon as you finish the CPT renewal process. Though renewing members won’t be required to take the full-length initial exam, you may be asked to take a short assessment after your CEUs are completed. When a potential employer sees your NPS certification, they will know you have been through extensive aptitude evaluations. Employers have confidence in our members, and we have confidence in you.

All NPS initial & renewal certification exams are live remote proctored by our partner PSI. A live proctor will monitor you throughout the duration of your exam. To learn more about live remote proctoring click here.

2 Using our e-learning platform

Once enrolled, we will assign you an academic advisor. We will send you your advisor’s direct contact information via email, along with your CPT certification renewal materials. Your advisor will monitor your progress, provide your exam results where applicable, revise your resume and assist you with job placement.

With our one-of-a-kind e-learning platform featuring intelligent automation, you will easily navigate your way through our renewal program. Though our advisors are here if you need them, we offer such an incredibly easy user experience, you’ll most likely not even need them until it’s time for the job placement process.

*The free NPS exam preparation materials are not required to sit for the certification exam. NPS does not claim these are the best or only source of exam preparatory materials a test taker should use. Use of these materials does not guarantee a passing score on the national exam.
