Policy on Certification Expiration

If a certified individual allows his/her certification to lapse six (6) months beyond the certification expiration date, the candidate may no longer recertify. He/she may become certified again only through the initial certification process.

The candidate must meet all current eligibility requirements (including education and practice) for initial certification as stipulated in the current certification application and/or candidate handbook, including all fees payable.

The candidate must sit for, and pass, the current form of the written certification examination.

CFRE International staff may approve an extension to a candidate’s grace period beyond the standard six (6) months in cases of severe hardship. CFRE does not grant extensions due to job demands, company budgets, changes in mailing address, and other personal or professional reasons.
