You do not need to document CE hours obtained through NAI programs, such as conferences, courses, or webinars. On the recertification application, simply check that you would like to use these NAI-issued hours. You can also find your CE hours in your NAI account, under My Account and then My Activities. Any NAI activities that have happened within the past year may not show up immediately. However, we have records of all NAI-issued CE hours so you do not need to notify us. This also applies to CE hours awarded by serving as a peer reviewer for professional certifications.
Continuing education hours obtained outside of NAI must be documented. This documentation must clearly specify the date, place, subject, sponsor, and total hours of the training. If the training provider issues a certificate with this information, you may submit the certificate as proof of the continuing education hours, otherwise you can use a combination of documents to provide proof of participation and hours earned. If you cannot provide documentation for a past training, you may use our continuing education form, which requires supervisor verification.
Submitted documentation must be formatted as a .pdf, .doc, or .docx, and be less than .98 MB, which is approximately 10 pages. You may upload more than one group of documents to your account.
NAI does not have the capacity to bank hours over the required 40 hours of continuing education needed in a four-year period. Documentation of continuing education must be submitted for each certification at the time of recertification.
