AFAA certifications must be renewed every two years. In order to recertify, you must earn at least 15 continuing education units (CEUs)*, and at least 2 of these CEUs must be from AFAA developed courses as located at e-AFAA. AFAA approved provider courses or courses from other institutions do not meet this AFAA mandatory CEU requirement. All other CEUs may be earned through additional AFAA courses and/or AFAA approved provider courses, and you may also petition to include CEUs received through courses taken from other institutions. Once you have earned your CEUs, you will need to fill out a Certification Renewal Application and submit it along with a renewal fee (found on the application). You will also need to hold a current CPR/AED certification in order to recertify with AFAA. CPR/AED certifications from online or home study courses will not be accepted.
AFAA offers a host of choices to help you earn CEUs. Onsite or Online, at home or in the office, AFAA has the options that help you continue your education anytime, anywhere. Options include:
- ONSITE WORKSHOPS — A variety of AFAA specialty onsite workshops and AFAA approved provider workshops are available each month all around the country. If you are currently AFAA certified, you can earn your CEUs at an onsite workshop!
