Continuing Education Credits

The certification renewal cycle will begin at the time of notification of passing the certification examination and continue through December 31st, three years later, and every three years thereafter. All certificants will be held to the December 1st deadline, regardless of his/her initial certification date. Subsequent certification cycles will begin on January 1st through December 31st, three years later.

For example, a certificant who achieves certification on September 3rd, 2014, would be due to re-certify by December 1st, 2017. Upon acquiring re-certification, the certificant's subsequent certification date would be January 1, 2018, and the expiration date would be December 31st, 2020.
