IF YOUR CERTIFICATE HAS LAPSED

AFAA offers a 180 day grace period, beyond your Certificate expiration date, to earn CEUs. If CEUs have been completed within your 180 day grace period, you have one-year to submit your paperwork for recertification. Failure to complete the required CEUs within the grace period will require re-examination.

*A late fee is required (per certification) for applications submitted 1-180 days after the certificate expiration date.
