To be eligible for MLBPA Certification, an applicant must:


  • Read, understand and agree to the MLBPA Regulations Governing Player Agents;

  • Complete the online Application for MLBPA Certification;

  • Submit a non-refundable Application fee of $2,500;

  • Successfully complete the background investigation;

  • Pass the written examination; and

  • Submit to the MLBPA a valid and appropriate designation form applicable to the type of certification sought.

You may apply for MLBPA Certification even if you have not yet been designated as the Agent of a Player, designated as a Recruiter or Client Maintenance Service Provider by a General Certified Agent, or designated as an Expert Agent Advisor by a General Certified Agent. However, you will not be eligible for MLBPA Certification until you have submitted a complete application, cleared the background investigation, passed the written exam, and received the required designation applicable to the certification you are seeking.
