CSHP members are required to earn a minimum of 25 CE credits annually to maintain an active status.
The goals of CSHP continuing education (CE) requirements are as follows:
  • 1.To ensure CSHPs remain current on important and timely issues related to serving the real estate and relocation needs of the older adult demographic.
  • 2. To encourage ongoing development of knowledge, skills, and resources for better serving mature clients, caregivers, and the aging services community.

CSHPs can earn credits in a variety of ways. Those who are actively working in the senior niche are likely already engaged in many of the activities necessary for earning credits.

To renew:

  • Verify you have earned the minimum 25 continuing education credits by participating in approved activities.
  • Submit the completed CSHP Continuing Education Form on or before your renewal date.
  • Submit the $129 membership fee.
