CDVP/CPAIP Certification – Renewal Notice
Due date: 09/30/22
ICDVP realizes that many in-person trainings have been canceled due to COVID-19 and, as a result, renewal requirements have been temporarily changed.
- The original expiration date of 09/30/22, has been extended until 11/30/22. It is important to note that this DOES NOT extend your next expiration date.
- 30 CEUs must be completed during the dates of 10/01/20 – 11/30/22.
- For the 09/30/22, renewal period, the 15 hours of in-person CEUs has been waived. All CEUs can be completed online.
- These above changes apply to the 09/30/22 renewal date ONLY.
Important Reminder Specific to this Renewal Date
CEUs cannot be utilized for more than one renewal application. The 09/30/20 renewal date had been extended to 11/30/20 due to COVID-19. If you submitted CEUs after 10/01/20 for your previous renewal period, you CANNOT submit them again for this renewal date. If CEUs from the previous renewal period are submitted, they will be rejected, and you will be required to submit additional CEUs to meet the renewal requirements.
Individual certification is renewed by completion of the required renewal Form 8, submitted proof that 30 hours of Continuing Education Units (CEU) have been obtained since the professional’s last renewal period, and payment of the renewal fee. All renewal documents must be postmarked by the expiration date.
Certification is valid for two years from the date of issue unless suspended or revoked by ICDVP Board for disciplinary reasons.
