Recertification Fee Waiver

If you are unemployed you may qualify for a waiver of the Recertification Reporting Fee. The Certification Committee will review each request case by case and will make the final decision on eligibility.

To qualify

  • Be prepared to recertify by having completed all 36 continuing education credits
  • Provide documentation verifying unemployment status and period of unemployment
  • Submit a Recertification Fee Waiver Request Form

A fee waiver does not exempt the certificant from the mandatory requirement to participate in the random audit conducted by AFP at the end of the recertification cycle.
