NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Renewal Of Credentials
The CB would continue to evaluate the situation and if the deadline for CEU submission changes, they will let the members know who would be directly impacted.
CB ON EXPIRING CERTIFICATIONS:
"In light of the AAMA office and Prometric test centers closing due to COVID-19, those certifications that were updated to expire June 30, 2020 and those with certifications expiring July 31, 2020, will be extended to August 31, 2020. The AAMA will be contacting those with certifications expiring in the above time frames with updated certification information. You do not need to do anything further."
"Need to Recertify by Continuing Education Before 90 Days Go By? The 90-day credential expiration policy has been extended to August 31, 2020, for those with expired credentials who are no longer able to recertify by continuing education after March 31, 2020. Thus, if your credential previously expired and had until March 31, 2020, to recertify by continuing education, you now have until August 31, 2020, to recertify by continuijng education. The Certifying Board will continue to monitor and evaluate these policies. We have only limited staff available to meet the high demand of certifying and recertifying CMAs (AAMA), so your patience is appreciated."
They further state that you can earn online CEUs the the e-Learning Center which will update your transcript automatically. Limited products are available through the AAMA Store but shipping could be delayed.
