NABCEP is now offering an extension on Board Certified recertifications and Associate renewals that will expire over the next 7 months. Due to the COVID-19 national emergency and the postponement of the 2020 NABCEP CE Conference, NABCEP Board Certified Professionals and Associates who are due for recertification or renewal on or before November 15, 2020 may fill out a COVID-19 Hardship Form to have their NABCEP Board Certification or Associate credential expiration dates extended to December 15, 2020.

The extension will be at no cost to Board Certified Professionals or Associates, and the extensions are meant to give individuals more time to meet their continuing education and industry experience requirements. The extension will allow NABCEP Board Certified Professionals and Associates to maintain their certifications and credentials over this time, as well as keep their names on the NABCEP Professional or Associate Directories, and receive updated digital badges that reflect the extension. Read more about requesting an extension here.

If your NABCEP Board Certification or Associate credential will expire soon and you’re having trouble meeting the requirements, please download and submit the COVID-19 Hardship Form in your recertification or renewal application.
