Recertification may be earned through a variety of continuing education activities. While the education need not be directly related to the area of your certification, activities should be related to your professional responsibilities.
While recertification activities do not need to be pre-approved, if you have any question about the availability of credits for a particular activity, complete and submit the credit evaluation form.
