Renewals and Reinstatements

Certification Renewal

All ABO-NCLE certifications are valid for three (3) years. Continuing education credits (CECs) must be earned within the three year (3) certification period and may not be accumulated and carried over from one period to another. All CECs and renewal fees are due on or before your expiration date.  There is no "grace period" or ability to renew subsequent to your expiration.  After expiration, Certificants will have to comply with the Reinstatement Requirements.
