Recertification Requirements and Fees
NAFTA certified professionals are required to complete the following steps every two years to maintain their NAFTA certifications:
- Complete a minimum 15 hours (15.0 CEU; 1 hour=0.1 CEU) of NAFTA-approved continuing education credits (CEU), with a minimum of 3 of these CEUs earned by attending a NAFTA workshop or completing NAFTA home study courses.
- Additional Certifications – When renewing multiple certifications simultaneously, a total of 15 CEU’s is required, with a minimum of 3 these CEUs being earned by attending a NAFTA workshop or completing NAFTA home study courses. You do not need to submit 15 CEU’s for each certification.
- Additional Certifications – When NOT renewing multiple certifications simultaneously, but renewing each certification on separate cycles: 15 CEUs per certification at the recertification cycle, with a minimum of 3 of these CEUs being earned by attending a NAFTA workshop or completing NAFTA home study courses. NAFTA recommends renewing multiple certifications simultaneously for financial savings.
- Maintain current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) certificate(s) (CPR only for NAFTA certified professions outside the US and Canada.). This certification must be current at time of renewal. The certificant is responsible for maintaining current CPR/AED certification. NAFTA is not responsible for notifying certificants of the status of this certification.
- Remain in good standing with NAFTA.
- Submit renewal documentation and payment online, via secure fax, or by mail (NAFTA recommends registered or certified mail with tracking) postmarked prior to the expiration date of the certification.
Please note that NAFTA offers discounts to those who hold multiple certifications and to those who renew online. Recertification applications will be accepted up to six months past the expiration date.
