Posted By: Sarah Pottelberg Certification,

An Inform USA Certification lasts for two years from the time you pass the examination. You must apply for re-certification before the end of that two-year period. You do not need to retake the exam to be recertified, but you must submit documentation for at least 10 hours of I&R training/professional development over that two-year period.

Acceptable training can include:

  • Continuing Education Units

  • Online training 

  • Conference workshops 

  • Webinars 

  • In-house training 

  • Structured visits to other service providers

Documentation must include the date/time/title of the event, the name/position of the instructor, and the learning objectives of the training activity.
