Certification Reinstatement 2018-08-28T12:11:04+00:00

If the loss of certification was due to failure to comply with the CEU requirement

…reinstatement may be requested via this form. Please note the following policies with regards to a request for reinstatement when certification has been revoked for failure to comply with the CEU requirement:

  • The application may not be submitted for review without payment – we will not review applications before payment is submitted. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. The effective reinstatement date will be the date the completed application is received.
  • Reinstatement is handled by the Certification department. For questions, please contact the Certification department at certification@rid.org or 703-838-0030, option 6.
  • The application must be signed and notarized.
  • Certifications can only be reinstated for a period of up to 24 months from the date of revocation.
  • Reinstatement is available once in a member’s lifetime.
  • Reinstatement of certification will result in a new certification cycle being added to the member’s account based on the date the reinstatement is approved. This will result in a gap in certification from the cycle end date to the reinstatement date. CEUs earned prior to the reinstatement date will not count toward the new certification cycle.
  • If the member has a current associate membership at the time of reinstatement, their membership is upgraded for the remainder of the fiscal year. If a member is not a current associate member at the time of reinstatement, they must pay certified member dues for the fiscal year they are reinstated in.
  • The reinstatement fee is non-refundable.

 

If certification has lapsed for 6 months or less, you are welcome to request a retroactive cycle extension. To submit this request please complete the application on the Certification Maintenance page.
