Why Get Certified?

NAMSS Certification allows you to:

  • Show your dedication to the field. Becoming certified indicates to others that you are committed to continuing your education and take pride in your profession.
  • Stand out in the industry. Gain confidence and demonstrate professional competence in the application of your knowledge.
  • Be better prepared to handle the day-to-day duties of your job. In order to achieve your certification, you must enhance your knowledge base to reinforce skills that you deal with on a regular basis!
  • Earn more for your expertise. More than 30 percent of current certificants received a salary increase as a result of being NAMSS certifed.*
  • Enhance your value and career development opportunities! Holding a CPCS® or CPMSM® puts you steps ahead of other non-certified MSPs.
