Reinstatement (Renewal Non-Payment)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​If you do not renew your annual certification by the December 31, 2018 deadline, you are no longer an Active Certificant. The reinstatement process allows you to reinstate your certification status to prevent your certification(s) from being permanently revoked. You have two opportunities to reinstate your certification(s):
