To maintain an active Graduate Membership (and the ability to use the NTP or NTC credential), NTA graduates are required to obtain 24 CEUs every 2 years starting from the date of graduation. When you graduate, you have a free two year trial Graduate Membership, and you will renew your membership by submitting CEUs in two years. If, for example, you graduated in June 2017, you will need to earn 24 CEUs by the time your membership renewal comes due on July 31, 2019. In general, the NTA awards 1 CEU for every 1 hour of education attended.
We’ll remind you by email when it’s time to renew and we’ll send you the Certificate Renewal form to fill out. To maintain your Graduate Membership and access to the benefits, please make sure to complete the Certificate Renewal form, including proof of your 24 CEUs, plus payment of $199 membership dues for the next two years, and send it in to us by the due date.
DATE RANGE FOR CEUS
To qualify, CEUs must have been earned within 30 months of one’s membership renewal date and no individual submissions or certificates are divided. For example, if you are renewing in July 2019, you can use CEUs you have obtained from January 2017 forward. If you are renewing in November 2019, you can use CEUs you have obtained from May 2017 forward.
We recommend keeping track of your continuing education as you go to make it easier on yourself when it’s time to submit, collecting your Certificates of Completion OR filling out an NTA CEU Report each time you complete continuing education and keeping them in a safe place.
