CSPT® recertification is required every year, while CPhT recertification is required every two years.
To successfully recertify, a CSPT must be a CPhT in good standing, complete at least five (5) hours of continuing education in sterile compounding, and submit a Competency Attestation Form completed by a qualified supervisor.
The minimum five hours of continuing education (CE) in sterile compounding required for CSPT recertification each year will be counted toward the 20 CE hours required for CPhT recertification every two years. For example, if your CSPT Certification is due to be renewed in 2020, and your CPhT recertification is due in 2021, the 5 CE hours in sterile compounding completed in 2020 and 5 hours in 2021 (10 hours total) will be counted toward the 20 CE hours required for CPhT recertification every two years.
