How Do I Renew My C.C.E. Certification?

C.C.E. certification is valid for two years. Individuals who received or renewed their C.C.E. certification in 2018 have until November 1, 2020 to renew their certification.

To achieve re-certification, a C.C.E.-certified professional is required to accumulate 30 “professional credits” for participating in various industry events and activities. A re-certification application which lists the full range of activities can be viewed HERE (PDF).

An online version of the form can be found HERE

The easiest way to achieve all 30 required credits is to attend the live C.C.E. Re-certification Workshop that will be held each year in conjunction with ISSA Show. ISSA also hosts a series of C.C.E. Renewal Webinars in October/November each year. Please check back for more information.
