Certification Renewal and Upgrade Requests

In March of 2019 the PSAI introduced an updated certification program for portable sanitation professionals and apprentices. In order to ensure that your credential has maximum value for your career, the PSAI Certification Commission added some features that are aligned with best practices for certification programs. Going forward, continuing education hours (CEHs) will be required to renew your certification. This requirement is being phased in over the next three years. 

How to Renew
Certifications before March 27, 2019 

You may renew simply by re-committing to the Code of Ethics, completing your paperwork and paying the fee. You will need CEHs to renew in the future. When we send you your new certificate and patch, we’ll also send information explaining this.

Certifications Granted March 27, 2019 and After

You will need 6 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs)  from PSAI-approved learning activities within the past three years to renew your credential. To do this, you will be asked to submit a list of your CEHs as well as a renewal request. Upon transcript review, CEH approval, and payment of appropriate fees, the PSAI will issue a new certificate with your new expiration date.

How to Upgrade Your Certification

A Certified Portable Sanitation Apprentice (CPSA) who has logged 2,000 hours of front line experience in the portable sanitation industry may upgrade his/her credential to the Certified Portable Sanitation Professional (CPSP) level at any time.

To do this you must provide documentation of your front line experience. If you are self-employed, this documentation must include one or more references that can verify the hours you have spent in the field.

If you have questions about how to provide the proper documentation please call the PSAI office at 952-854-8300.
