To retain an active FARA Professional Certification designation, each participant must annually obtain one hundred Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Unless the proper number of units are earned and submitted, certifications will become inactive on the anniversary date of when the participant passed the exam following implementation of the renewal program. Listed activities have been pre-approved for credit. Participants may submit additional activities for consideration for credit to the FARA Training and Certification Committee in care of the FARA Executive Director. These requests will be considered on a case by case basis by the Training and Certification Committee. In the event the participant is not satisfied with the decision of the Training and Certification Committee, the participant may make a written request for the FARA Board to review the decision in care of the FARA Executive Director. Decisions of the FARA Board on the appeal are final.
