What is CCSP Certification?

Becoming a Certified Customer Service Professional is a testament to your unwavering dedication to cultivating a customer-centric environment in your organization. This certification acknowledges your active involvement in the dynamic field of customer service for over two years, coupled with your successful completion of a rigorous examination focusing on core customer service principles.

Your status as a Certified Customer Service Professional not only boosts your credibility but also positions you as a leader in the realm of customer service. Your colleagues and employers can confidently rely on you to champion exceptional service, contributing significantly to the overall success and stellar reputation of our organization.


Who is it for?

The Certified Customer Service Professional (CCSP) certification is specifically designed for individuals with a minimum of two years of practical experience in serving customers, either internally or externally, across various industries.

This certification is ideal for professionals who have actively contributed to the customer service domain and are seeking formal recognition of their expertise and commitment to excellence in customer interactions. Whether you hold a front-line customer service role or play a supporting function within your organization, achieving the CCSP certification is a powerful validation of your dedication to delivering outstanding service and enhancing customer satisfaction.


How is it assessed?

To obtain the CCSP certification, you must pass a 100 multiple-choice question exam (MCQ). The CCSP exam was created by customer service professionals for customer service professionals, so each test question can be related to real-life customer service experiences.

Once completed, the exam will be system-scored and immediately provide a result of “Pass” or “Fail.” A score of 65% or more is required to pass the exam.

If a candidate fails the exam they may retake it by re-registering and paying 50% of the exam fee. There is no limit on the number of times a candidate may take the exam.
