How to Change Certificate Levels

Certificants may move from one level to another by earning the additional academic requirements or key area training required for the next level. You must submit an application form, certificates of completion and/or college transcripts, and payment for the level you are applying for.

You also may downgrade from one level to the next by submitting the certificate renewal application and appropriate fee. 

If you change certificate levels, you will be given a new certificate expiration date.  You also will be expected to meet the CEU requirements and fees for the new level at that expiration date.

The requirements to move from one level to the next are listed in the document below
