Yes. The GPCI credential remains in effect for three years from date of issue. To maintain the GPC, a Grant Professional Certified individual must continue to demonstrate competence and continued learning throughout his or her career. GPCI has adopted a Certification Maintenance Program (CMP), which requires demonstration of participation in a minimum number of professional development activities, including but not limited to attendance at GPCI CMP approved workshops, conferences and trainings; completion of independent studies; mentorships as a mentor or mentee; continued work in the field and more. A nominal fee is charged to each GPC participating in the CMP program.

Individuals who want to maintain their certification but have not participated in the CMP program are required to retake the GPC Exam to reinstate the credential once it expires. More information on the CMP process can be found here.
