Documentation of continuing education is only required for recertification if a certified professional is randomly selected for review, or audit of their education hours. Audits occur twice per year (every January and July).
Those selected for audit will be notified and must submit documentation of the appropriate number of hours of education/training that they completed in the prior two-year period. Since the audit process is random, individuals may be selected for audit multiple times.
Non-compliance with the required education/training for recertification is viewed as a breach of professional ethics.
DO NOT send in copies of your certificates of completion for trainings with your recertification application. These will not be reviewed at the time of your recertification and will be discarded. You will only send copies of training certificates if you are randomly selected for a recertification audit.
