Upcoming Policy Changes

  • Reinstating an Expired Certification - Policy Change Effective January 1, 2019.

The NACE Institute allows a three month grace period (90 days) after your certification expiration date before your record is marked as “Inactive.” Currently, you have up to five years to reinstate your certification and pay all fees in arrears, before your certification becomes permanently “Expired”. Effective January 1, 2019, the reinstatement period will decrease from five years to two years which means that certifications that are “Inactive” for more than two years will NOT be eligible for reinstatement and will require starting the program over from the beginning.
