"Recertification offers a measurement of the professional growth of those who proudly carry the designation"
Bob Braund, CMTSE, R.O. Deaderick

Certified Manufacturing Technology Sales Engineers (CMTSEs) are a select group of individuals practicing within the machine tool industry. They have demonstrated through personal experience, education and testing their knowledge of manufacturing technology sales. The CMTSE Recertification Process is designed to encourage ongoing educational and professional growth.

Recertification Overview
A Certified Manufacturing Technology Sales Engineer must recertify every three years by obtaining Professional Development Points (PDPs) in four developmental areas: Experience, Education and Training, Professional Service and Professional Contributions. A total of 27 Professional Development Points are necessary. 

CMTSEs who earned their accreditation or renewed it in 2016, are due to recertify in 2019.

Deadline: November 1, 2019

Documenting Professional Development Points
