Reinstatement of Lapsed Credentials

 

You need to submit to MCB your completed recertification application and annual renewal fee before the expiration date on your certificate.  If the recertification is not postmarked by the expiration date, the individual will no longer hold their credential and so may not represent themselves as such.  

If you wish to become recertified after your certificate has lapsed, you may be eligible for a reinstatement, which includes a reinstatement fee and bringing all renewal fees, continuing education, and other requirements up to date.  The following guidelines will be applied.

If you apply to reinstate your credential within 30 days of your missed recertification date, you will be assessed a $30 late fee.  You would also be responsible for any missed fees and continuing education requirements.

If you apply to reinstate your credential between 1 month to 1 year of your missed recertification date, you will be assessed a $100 reinstatement fee.  You would also be responsible for any missed fees, forms, and continuing education requirements.

If you apply to reinstate your credential between 1 year to 2 years of your missed recertification date, you will be assessed a $250 reinstatement fee.  You would also be responsible for any missed fees, forms, and continuing education requirements.

If your certificaton has lapsed for more than two years, your file will be closed and you will not be eligible to reinstate your credential.  You would be required to apply for a new credential, meeting the current requirements for the credential at that time and paying the full certification fee for the new credential.  Upon approval/completion of these steps, you will be issued a new certificate number.
