Each certification is valid for 5 years as long as the practitioner maintains their annual background checks. They can keep their existing certification longer than 5 years if they attend and accumulate sufficient CEUs appropriate to their level of certification during that 5 year period, showing continuing update of their knowledge and skills. There is an annual renewal fee for certificate renewal every 5 years.

All certifications must be kept current through:

  • Annual Background Checks: Annual verified criminal background checks

  • CEUs: Sufficient Continuing Education Units CEUs during every 5-year period

  • Fees: Paying certification renewal fee every 5 years (or reinstatement fees for lapsed certifications, in addition to any other reinstatement requirements)
