Each 2-year certification period starts from the Registrant’s date of registration and follows thereafter in 2-year increments upon the anniversary of the original date of registration. This date is listed on the Registrant’s CEU report, found within the Member Profile section of the website. Under normal circumstances, Registrants are required to submit a total 40 approved CEUs on a bi-annual basis, in accordance with CVRP Registration Procedure S.65.
Registrants will automatically receive email notice at 90, 60 and 5 days prior to their annual renewal date. Renewal forms and payment will now be accessed from Member Profile as of April 1st, 2015. It is up to the Registrant to monitor the status of their CEU period.
Under exceptional circumstances, a Registrant may apply for extension of the CEU period. The maximum length of time that a Registrant may extend the CEU period is 60 days.
Subsequent to a 60 day period of extension for CEU submission, should the Registrant be unable to complete the requirements for CEU completion and submission, the Registrant should contact the Registrar to discuss re-instatement options.
