Renewal or Upgrade for TMP

Credential Renewal or Upgrade

Renewal is mandatory to keep your certification live and current. You are required to renew your TMP Credential every 3 years. When you renew, you show your continuing competence and commitment to the profession. TMI will send you reminder emails for renewal of your credential, wherein you simply have to click the links mentioned in these communications, or log into your TMI account and register for TMP renewal. In order to receive email reminders from TMI, please make sure to keep your email address current. Please note that training is not mandatory for renewal and you only have to register and complete a short–duration online refresher learning program as per the latest Talent Management Body of Knowledge (TMBoK).

TMP Credential-holders can skip renewing their credential if they exercise the option to upgrade to STMP. Check the section 'TMP Credential Upgrade to STMP' below for details.
