Missed the renewal deadline?

To reinstate your certification, complete these two easy steps.

  • Apply for reinstatement by March 31, 2021. As part of the application process, you will be charged the renewal fee and an additional $300 reinstatement fee.
  • Submit your professional development points in LearningBuilder by March 31, 2021. You must also upload documentation (e.g., CE certificates or other documentation) for all of the points you submit in LearningBuilder. If you need to earn points to complete your reinstatement, you can find a variety of free online CE activities.

If you choose to let your certification expire and want to become certified in the future, you would need to meet the eligibility criteria for an initial candidate and pass the certification test.*
