Certification Maintenance

What happens after I submit my certification renewal form (CRF)?

Once you submit your CRF, your renewal date for all certifications you hold (including any certifications earned during your two-year maintenance cycle) is automatically extended two years from your certification renewal date. This applies regardless of when you submitted your CRF during this cycle.

Below is a graphic depicting your two-year maintenance cycle. The option to start a new CRF will appear after your certification renewal date.
