If a certification has been expired for less than 3 years from the original expiration date, candidates can reinstate expired certifications by meeting the CEU requirements for certification renewals AND taking the designated online course. There is an additional reinstatement fee per application to reinstate certificates that are expired ($125 for Members; $175 for nonmembers). If a certification has not been reinstated after 3 years from the original expiration date, certifications will no longer qualify for reinstatement. Candidates who have been expired for more than 3 years or who cannot meet the CEU and online course requirements will be required to pass the certification exam to become certified.
