Recertification by CEUs
Recertification > Certification

This option requires the accumulation of 12 CEUs over a 3-year certification period; CEUs are earned through various activities in 4 separate categories.

The fees are $295 for certified members; $385 for certified non-members, which includes the recertification application and processing and review. There are NO refunds.

If you are unsure of your ability to acquire 12 CEUs, you may review the Recertification by CEUs Application example on our website to review the categories and values, before purchasing.

You must submit your application before your expiration date to avoid removal from our certified directory.

If you are in need of recertification CEUs, consider our Online Learning Center, which features modules based upon actual technical presentations captured at our Annual Meetings. Each module is awarded 0.10 CEUs upon completion.

To avoid delays in processing your application, please make sure you (1) complete your application accurately, (2) list the required information in the space provided on the application and (3) provide the amount of CEUs you are claiming per category.
