A CDGP keeps their accreditation after 5 years in one of two ways:
- They must show that they have been employed full-time in the Dangerous Goods field and completed a minimum of 20 hours relevant education during each year of the intervening period.
- Demonstrate currency by taking the latest version of the exam.
Many businesses and organisations around the world see the benefits of their DG professionals holding a relevant multimodal vocational qualification. CDGP is officially recognised by many multinational organisations, states across the USA and by the US military.
