Dear ASP Members,
Welcome to the ASP Certification Program. The purpose of the ASP Certification Program is to establish a high-level of quality and consistency within the strategic planning and management industry so that strategic planners and those responsible for developing and deploying strategy can assist organizations in meeting and exceeding the challenges of the 21st century. The Program is based on the ASP Standards, Competencies and Body of Knowledge Framework (BOK Framework) which was developed by leaders in the field of strategic planning and management to guide the certification of strategy professionals in the United States as well as internationally.
ASP offers two certifications, the Level I Strategic Planning Professional (SPP) and the Level II Strategic Management Professional (SMP), and a designation, the Strategic Planning Associate (SPA). ASP members as well as non-members are eligible to apply for Certification. The Association also qualifies Registered Educational Providers (REPs) to offer courses and programs in strategic planning and management that align with ASP’s BOK Framework, including but not limited to courses to prepare individuals for passing the certification exams.
1 ASP contracts with Professional Testing Corporation (PTC), an independent third party testing service. www.ptcny.com .
2 Recertification requirements and fees are currently under review and may be revised as of 2012.
3 Contact Hours Calculation: 1 CEU = 10 contact hours.
ASP REPs hours are double credit (5 REP contact hours = 1 CEU).
ASP REPs (i.e. Registered Educational Providers) are independent vendors qualified by ASP to teach its
Body of Knowledge.
