Q: I’m already a CSP. What do the new CSP designation requirements mean for me? 

Your CSP designation will continue to be valid, as long as you maintain your designation under the new requirements after May 2018.

For a limited time, individuals who hold a CSP with Distinction who meet the experience requirements for Certified Sales Leaders (CSL) may apply to the CSL designation with an exception from the final CSL exam. 


Q: I’m currently a CSP. Can I fast track my Certified Sales Leader designation? 

Yes. For a limited time, current CSPs with distinction, or with more than 10 years of experience in sales leadership or sales education, may apply for an exemption from the CSL exam.

All other CSL requirements apply.


Q: I was previously a Certified Sales Professional but I let my designation lapse. Can I re-activate it? 

If you are a formerly-designated CSP who has been inactive for 3 years or less, you can apply to re-activate your certification by providing annual professional development documentation for that period, demonstrating ongoing learning and experience in key professional sales skill areas from the competency framework.


Q: When will the CPSA Institute start accepting applications for the new designations? 

You can start the process of applying for Certified Sales Associate, Certified Sales Professional, or Certified Sales Leader today by completing this form.
