Recertification Demystified

Certification does not last a lifetime but must be renewed every four years. To keep your certification, you must submit 40 hours of continuing education and pay a recertification fee.  Continuing education hours can come from NAI workshops, conferences, webinars and other training or from anything that might support your certification (CPR/First Aid training, college courses, Project Wild workshops, etc.). For more information on what you can count, please refer to either the Certification Handbook and Study Guide (the section on recertification starts on page 17) or watch the webinar below for more insight.
