Renewing Your Certification

Pursuant to Gov't Codes 2155.078 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 the State Certification CEH Tracking Document (State Certification Renewal) which must be submitted 30 but not more than 60 days prior to your expiration date.

The hours may be averaged over a five (5) year period with no more than 36 CEH's during any certification year. We recommend completing 16 CEH's each certification year.

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 AND download the State Certification Renewal (XLS). 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, test and apply for certification.

If you have additional questions regarding renewing your certification, please contact the professionals in the Training and Certification program.
