4R NMP Specialty Certification

The 4R NMP specialty is for CCAs who do nutrient management planning and focus their work in this area.  It allows CCAs to prove their knowledge, advance their skills and draw awareness to their abilities.  It should align with USDA-NRCS and state nutrient management standards.  It is currently available in six states – Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and you must already have a CCA certification within these states. There are plans to expand to more states in the near future.  If you would like to see this specialty be available in your state/province, please contact your local board or ICCA Representative. Once the 4R exam is passed, an annual maintenance fee will be charged in addition to your CCA renewal, and the minimum required for Nutrient Management and Soil and Water Management will increase to 7.5 each (from 5.0).


You must be 18 years old in order to register for the CCA Exams. 

CANCELLATION:  You may cancel at any time up to the registration deadline.
Note that you will only receive a refund for any amount over $75.00.
The exam fee is nonā€refundable after the registration deadline.
This also applies to retest applications.

Please contact your certification representative with any questions.
