Certified individuals who fail to obtain enough hours should not submit a CPE reporting form. Only when the individual has earned enough hours should the reporting form(s) be completed.
Individuals who do not complete their CPE reporting and pay for the renewal on or before the expiration date of their certification, the certification will be expired. You have a 30 day grace period to renew. If it is not renewed the credentials will be permanently revoked and you would need pay for a new exam license ($450) to sit for the examination again.
Individuals with a expired (grace period) status may not claim that they are certified.
To change a status from expired (grace period) back to a certified active status, the individual must complete the prior year’s CPE reporting form for each certification held with an expired (grace period) status and pay the $125 renewal fee.
