Maintaining Your Designation
A viable certification program requires the certificant to stay abreast of developments in the subject matter and practice of the specialty. To that end, AFCPE requires its certificants to acquire appropriate continuing education units and to report these to the national office on a bi-annual basis.
In order to stay in good standing and use the designation, the following requirements must be met:
Pay the annual certification fee.
Acquire the appropriate hours of Continuing Education Units during each 2 year reporting period.
(begins Jan 1, 2014 / ends Dec 31, 2015)
AFC = 30 hours / CHC = 45 hours
Note:If you do not pay certification annual fees and/or submit required CEUs, your designation will expire and you will no longer be considered in good standing.
