Did you know that...
The Renewal Policies have changed?
Under the new policies, you only need 90 Professional Development Points (PDPs) for renewal, if you send your application before your expiration date. If you work more than 1,500 hours per year you earn 30 PDPs. During the three years of your certification, you can earn 90 PDPs, the number needed for renewal, just from working.
If you wait until after your certificate expires, you have a 4-month grace period to get your reneal application in, however, the PDPs increase to 120. Below are some ways to earn the additional PDPs.
You need to send documentation of work experience PDPs with your Renewal Application?
All renewing candidates must provide signed documentation of their work experience during the three year certified period. Only those renewal applications selected randomly for audit must submit signed verification of the PDPs claimed on their renewal applications for training and other professional activities.
Sending in your renewal application before your certification expires does not change the expiration date on your certification?
Regardless of how early we receive your application, your renewed certificate will have an expiration date three years from the date of current expiration. Your application will be reviewed within 60 days of your current expiration date, and your new certificate will be mailed within approximately 30 days of the expiration.
