Renewal Information

Don’t let your accomplishment lapse! You don’t want to say, “I used to be an NBCT.”

There are currently two types of renewal opportunities. If you certified before 2012, you will participate in Renewal 1.0. The process asks you to reflect on what you have learned since you certified. Those who certified after 2012 will participate in a not-yet-released Maintenance of Certification. Visit the NBPTS website for renewal details. Renewal support at the NBRC.
