CRA Recertification

To maintain the CRA credential, CRAs must obtain 36 eligible continuing education (CE) credits every 3 years. No more than 18 CRA CE credits used on a CRA renewal can come from any single domain (content) area. CRAs must submit a $175 recertification fee with the 36 CE credits before their renewal deadline.

On the first CRA renewal, candidates who have successfully passed the CRA examination will be awarded 12 CRA CE credits. The 12 credits are considered part of the 36 credits necessary to maintain the CRA credential in the first triennium.
