Renewing Your Certification
Pursuant to Gov't Code §2155.078 and part of acquiring a certification, it is your responsibility to remain in compliance with the required continuing education training hours. You will be required to complete and submit verifying documentation of 120 continuing education hours with your application for renewal within 30 days prior to the expiration month on your certificate.
The hours may be averaged over a five (5) year period with no more than 45 hours during any one year period. We recommend completing 24 hours of continuing education each certification year. It is your responsibility to maintain and track your hours. 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 "How do I Recertify?" (PDF) presentation in order to access the online renewal application.
Use of this system should occur at least 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.
If you have additional questions regarding renewing your certifcation , please contact the professionals in the Training and Certification program.
