Renewing Your Certification
Pursuant to Gov't Codes 2155.078, 2155.324-325, and 2262.053 and part of acquiring a certification, it is your responsibility to remain in compliance with the required continuing education training hours (CEH's). You will be required to complete and The State Certification Renewal Excel File which must be submitted 30 but not more than 60 days prior to your expiration date as certifications are not viewed on a first come first served basis, but rather by date of expiration.
The hours may be averaged over a five (5) year period with no more than 45 CEH's during any certification year. We recommend completing 24 CEH's each certification year. It is your responsibility to maintain and track your CEH's as you take your classes. In the event you fail to meet the continuing education requirement, your certification will expire and you will be required to retake the required levels of training course, retest and reapply for certification.
Renewing your certification can be a cumbersome process due to the years of accumulated documentation required. For this reason, you must view the Certification Renewal-How Does It Work (PDF) presentation. Make sure you have downloaded the State Certification Renewal (XLS).
If you have additional questions regarding renewing your certification, please contact the professionals in the Training and Certification program.
