Overview of Certification Renewals
NADCA requires certified individuals to have 6 (six) Continuing Education Credits (CECs) each year in order to be eligible for renewal. Individuals who do not accrue sufficient continuing education credits prior to their renewal date are required to re-take the examination at the regular fees.
The certification year runs from July 1 to June 30, and credits for renewal must have been earned during that timeframe. For instance, if six credits were obtained in December 2013, they would count toward renewing the ASCS for the 2014-2015 year. If six credits were obtained in May 2013, they would count toward renewing the ASCS for the 2013-2014 year.
CECs can be obtained through attendance at NADCA seminars and conventions, online renewal quizzes, attending related industry training programs, and a variety of other means.
Attending NADCA’s Annual Meeting & Expo provides access to the CEC Training Program, which is a cost-effective option for companies with more than one ASCS on staff. Upon arrival at the Annual Meeting, each attendee receives a CD containing CEC-designated presentations on the program schedule. Following the Annual Meeting, this CD can be used to educate any ASCS's within a NADCA company who did not attend the event. An affidavit (included on the CD) must be signed and returned to NADCA, stating that the presentation materials were covered in-depth. There is an annual maintenance fee ($75.00 for members, $800 for non-members) associated with certification renewal.
The CVI certification is valid for three years, expiring on July 1 of the third year. CVI renewal is completed by taking an online quiz, located on the NADCA Testing Site. This is the only option for CVI renewal.
