Renewal Requirements

Thank you for your interest in Recertification with AANPCB. Certificants are encouraged to apply online. A paper application is available for certificants who prefer this method.

Certification is "time limited". Minimum requirements for renewal of certification must be met within the 5-year period of certification in order to renew certification. For detailed information, refer to the Recertification Handbook [2MB .pdf].

There are two options for certification renewal.

Option 1: Recertify by Clinical Practice Hours and Continuing Education (CE)

Option 2: Recertify by Examination

When you are ready to recertify, proceed to our homepage and scroll down until you see the "Recertify Now" button. You will be prompted to login to your online profile, and will then proceed to the online application. Paper applications are also available under "Forms" on the navigation bar, and include a built-in processing fee of $50 per submission.
