  • Submit: 40 contact hours, or Use the one-time Waiver, which allows you to automatically recertify without submitting contact hours.

To use the one-time waiver, you must check the box next to the “I wish to use my one time waiver” option on the Recertification Application. Once the waiver is used, it cannot be used again.
