Beginning January 1, 2014, the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion approved the designation of CCP Emeritus to recognize retiring CCPs with 20 or more cumulative years of experience as a CCP in good standing, and to acknowledge their former certified status.
To be conferred with this status the following stipulations must be met:
- the retiring CCP, with 20 or more cumulative years of experience as a CCP in good standing, must request the CCP Emeritus status within 30 days of losing certification (January 31 of the year that certification is lost);
- he/she must agree to use the title CCP Emeritus and not to use the title CCP, CCP-R, Certified Clinical Perfusionist, or Certified Clinical Perfusionist Retired;
- he/she must maintain a current mailing/email address on file with the ABCP National Office.
Once the CCP Emeritus status is conferred, his/her name will be published on the ABCP website with the title of CCP Emeritus, and he/she will be provided with a certificate recognizing his/her service as a CCP. The CCP Emeritus will also receive the ABCP Annual Report and any other appropriate ABCP publications. There is no fee associated with this status.
